Factory installs solar to reduce costs, emissions

Emergent Energy, which was recently wholly acquired by financial services provider FedGroup, has completed a 83 kW rooftop solar installation for Cape Union Mart’s K-Way factory in Ottery, Cape Town, helping the company to realise its ambitions to cut carbon emissions and reduce its environmental impact. On days with abundant sunshine, for instance, the K-Way rooftop solar plant is capable of meeting all of the factory’s electricity needs. This means less reliance on the grid, and when there’s a surplus, opportunities for additional revenue become available. K-Way, for example, is embarking on a process to feed excess electricity generated over weekends from the over 250 solar panels installed on the factory’s roof, into the City of Cape Town’s grid.
