Ed's Note: It’s not news that S.Africa’s energy sector is in turmoil. Leading the fray is its power utility Eskom but things are afoot to escape disaster.
Lamo Solar, a young black-owned small solar energy company, is working towards making renewable energy accessible to all South Africans and into Africa.
The wind industry believes that South Africa needs to shift away from a centralised monopoly to a more efficient decentralised generation model will increase competition and drive down energy prices.
In Africa, it is estimated that by 2035 solar PV projects will contribute 9.8% of electricity generation making way for solar module efficiency development.
In an effort to pre-empt national legislation, the City of Cape Town has issued a notice requiring registration of solar PV systems before 31 May 2019.
The poll results are not surprising as South Africans feel that the SSEG market will empower them to withstand the effects of loadshedding.
The City of Cape Town has signed a letter of collaboration with USAID and the Southern Africa Energy Program to investigate appropriate solar PV schemes for the benefit of the City's residents.
