Site visits will prove province green in “heart and soul”
Says Claire Volkwyn, project director of African Utility Week: “The Western Cape is a show case for renewable energy in South Africa. African Utility Week again presents a dedicated conference break away detailing the role of renewable energy in the continent’s energy mix. Some 2000 delegates, who come from all over the world, will be able to attend the conference, visit the exhibition but also go on site visits to be able to see in practice how green energy is implemented in the Cape.”

The site visits on 17 March include:

The 60-kW array consists of ten trackers and took about two weeks to install and commission.
