SolarReserve, working with Netcare Ltd., has rolled out commercial-size solar PV rooftop installations at 15 of Netcare’s facilities in South Africa.
The facilities included Netcare 911’s head office in Midrand and 14 Medicross family medical and dental centers across the country. The sites combined deliver about 720 kilowatts peak of solar power, with a cumulative production of over 950 MW-hours per year – saving 34,354 tons of CO2 emissions annually.
SolarReserve's alternative clean energy solutions are helping Netcare meet the goals of their environmental sustainability strategy to reduce their carbon footprint and ensure the security of the supply of electricity required by their high-acuity operations, which is critical in delivering the best patient experience. Actively managing their dependency on municipal power during standard tariff periods by securing a portion of their power supply from a clean, renewable power source that they own results in direct and indirect cost savings, reduced environmental impact and better management of risk related to future municipal tariff uncertainty.
SolarReserve's Energy Solutions division in South Africa provides turnkey, grid-tied and off-grid solar photovoltaic (PV) rooftop, ground-mount, and carport solutions to South African commercial and industrial entities that will significantly reduce their energy costs, carbon footprint and provide predictability in terms of budgets. The company's in-house team takes care of every part of the project, including financing, custom system engineering, installation and ongoing system maintenance and monitoring.
