1156 kW project a prime retail solar example at Sasol’s Secunda Mall
SOLA Future Energy was commissioned to complete a 1156 kW solar system on two roofs of Secunda Mall. The retail centre solar PV installation was completed over 10 weeks, and consisted of 3400 mono-crystalline modules and 20 solar inverters. The solar installation is expected to produce 1 895 447 kWh of electricity for the retail centre per annum, resulting in a total of 1678 tons of C02 reduction per year that the PV system is operational. The retail centre will save over R2 100 000 in the first year of operation, meaning the system will pay back in less than 6 years.
