South Africa's Developing Solar Energy Landscape

Until a few years ago solar panels were a rare sight in South Africa, largely limited to the roofs of a few affluent households. This is changing rapidly, driven by three factors: the worldwide drive towards renewable energy, a highly strained local electricity supply, and a steady drop in solar panel prices. Taking the lead from other countries, South Africa committed to an energy generation infrastructure development plan for 2010 to 2030, known as the Integrated Resource Plan. Under the plan the country aims to achieve 9600 MW of solar power capacity by 2030. 
 
  
Energy Tips for January

Let these tips warm you up!


  • Keep your sense of humidity.
The winter air can get dry! Optimal indoor humidity for health and comfort is about 40%. By keeping the air at a comfortable humidity level, you can keep the thermostat turned down low and still feel comfortably warm. Running a humidifier, some living plants in your home, or leaving the exhaust fan off while you shower once in a while can help.   

  • Choose and use space heaters wisely.
Space heaters make sense when you're trying to keep heating costs down, but some can be dangerous. Buy them wisely and use them carefully. Radiant heaters are the most efficient type of space heater, and the best ones power down when the room reaches the desired temperature. Always keep fabric, paper, and other combustible materials well away from space heaters, and unplug them when not in use.
