Rooftop Solar PV applications takes off in South Africa

Vodacom South Africa’s number one cellular network operator has announced that  it will fit  its Century City in Cape Town office with the largest array of solar panels on a single building in Africa.The project, a 500kWp which is expected to be completed in August, comprises of  installation of about 2 000 mono crystalline solar panels onto SolarWorld Sundeck and 100% recycled Suntabs roof sheeting over a 3 600 m² area. The solar array is expected to produce about 75% of the 650 kWp power requirements of the building during peak production. The solar roof  will yield an expected energy saving of about 830.1 MWh a year – the amount of power it would take to charge over 70-million cellphones a year.It is important initiaves like this one  that will help ensure a clean, strong and reliable energy system for the future.

This great stride will encourage other companies and  property owners to get involved in producing clean energy – that not only helps to boost economy, but it also helps boost overall demand for Solar PV courses and related green training. maxx- energy welcomes these new developments. Consumers willing to use maxx - energy solar's rooftop PV applications can actively partake in the emerging green energy economy thereby contributing to a healthier environment and creating more alternative energy jobs.

2012 International Year of Sustainable Energy For All

/---/UN Secretary‐General Ban Ki‐moon at the recently held Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development announced actions and commitments in support of the UN’s Sustainable Energy for All initiative towards achieving three objectives –;

  • ensuring energy access,
  • doubling energy efficiency
  • doubling the share of renewable energy – all by 2030.


More than 50 Governments from Africa, Asia, Latin America and Small Island Developing States have engaged with the initiative and are developing energy plans and programmes. Businesses and investors have committed more than $50 billion to achieve the initiative’s three objectives. More than one billion people will benefit from Sustainable Energy for All’s public and private sector commitments.

Access to energy, particularly sustainable energy, is indistinguishable from a sustainable future for the developing world. Not only does access to energy transform the lives of the energy-poor by raising living standards, it also:

  • enables income generation – for example, through solar pumps for irrigation or electricity for a small business;
  • provides power to community health clinics, and refrigerators to store medicines, as well as cell phones, which have transformed commerce;
  • reduces the time and drudgery of collecting fuel wood, supporting cleaner, more efficient cooking and heating options;
  • provides lighting, so children can study after dark;
  • enables businesses to operate and creates new opportunities for entrepreneurs
