KwaZulu-Natal is known for its beaches and sunshine, and local retail businesses are starting to take advantage of all those sunny days to generate their own electricity with a view to “going green” and to reducing their monthly electricity costs. Mtuba Mall is a 17 200 square meter regional shopping centre situated 200 kilometres north of Durban. The mall’s owners have been keenly aware of the huge cost and greening benefits that could be achieved through harnessing solar energy. And now, thanks to SolarSaver, the mall is in a position to do just that. SolarSaver, a company that allows clients to install customised solar photovoltaic (PV) solution via a unique rent-to-own model, completed installation of a 1-megawatt (1MW) installation at the mall in July.
