Green belt promenades bordered with trees and bathed in sunlight are more appealing than any pylon park with steel lattice towers and power lines.
South Africa anticipates an energy crisis as Eskom confirms that the national grid faces strain. Dwindling abilities to cope with electricity demands, coupled with obstacles in the construction of the new Medupi Power Station, threaten load shedding and rolling blackouts.
The publication of the Electricity Governance Initiative – Smart Electricity Planning speaks of the vital need for adopting alternative energy resources, such as solar, if our country is to be resilient in the face of energy depletion. South Africans must collectively commit to harness efficient energy consumption.
Africa is inundated with a radiant, natural and free power resource – sunshine. With clean solar energy, there’s the option of living off the grid. By embracing solar technology, rural communities needn’t live without electricity. City dwellers will reduce their household energy consumption and electricity bills may not soar as high as forecasters predict.
Solar energy inspires innovation, is inexhaustible and achievable. With increased demands for solar products, such as our Consol Solar Jar, costs will lower resulting in an even more affordable retail price. Suntoy reaffirms our commitment to actively participating in the realisation of a ‘smart’ future. We all benefit from a greener grid. Go solar.
