As part of the City Logistics sustainability objectives, City Industrial Property installed a solar PV system on the roof of the Bellville depot. During sunlight hours the solar PV system is designed to provide 100% of energy required to power the property.
This solar PV system will go a long way in assisting this property to achieve the targeted 4-Star Green Rating Certification from the Green Building Council of South Africa. We look forward to rolling out further solar energy implementation projects in all depots nationwide.
In times when the energy produced is more than the demand, the surplus energy is fed back into the electrical grid The solar PV system is a 120kWp system, powered by 360 x 335W Suntech solar panels and 2 x Sungrow 55kW Inverters.
