Rooftop PV for Waterfall Maal in Rustenburg (ZA)

Growthpoint Properties plans to install a R10-million utility-scale 892-MWh-a-year solar power rooftop plant to power its Waterfall Mall, in Rustenburg.
The group signed an agreement with Solar Century Africa and State-owned power utility Eskom for the installation of the plant, which is capable of generating enough energy to power 750 average-sized homes and offset 928 t of carbon dioxide, by the end of November.

Eskom's Integrated Demand Management division subsidised 20% of the capital cost as part its small-scale renewables programme.

Earlier Growthpoint piloted alternative energy generation at three of its office properties, but this is its first utility-scale development and the first at a shopping mall.
