The Japanese Embassy in South Africa has installed 410 solar panels to the value of R8-million in an effort to reduce its yearly carbon emissions.
It is estimated that around 90 t a year of carbon dioxide would be saved using the solar panels. The embassy decided to switch to solar power generation, owing to South Africa's solar friendly climate and to showcase its commitment in tackling the serious issues of climate change.
The new system is one of the largest solar power generation systems for office use in South Africa. The panels, supplied by Sanyo, are able to produce 100 kW/h of electricity, which would cover between 80% and 90% of the Embassy's power needs.
