PONTY PRIDD INSTALLS SOLAR POWER
Safi Power has installed a grid tied solar power installation to substantially reduce daytime power costs at the company’s headquarters and logistics center. The plant capacity would be approximately 500,000 kWh over its lifetime. This plant will substantially bring down electricity costs.
According to an International Energy Agency report published in 2016, transport was responsible for 23% of total CO2 emissions and road transport was responsible for 20%. While there is the barrier of high cost of transport clean technologies, there are other ways to lower the carbon footprint. Until the cost of alternative vehicle energy systems fall enough to be attractive or accessible to the African market. We pride ourselves in taking part in tackling climate change.
The installation will account for a reduction of 55 tonnes of CO2 emissions with an average energy penetration of 60%.
