Genesis Group's SSEG division, Touchpoint Energy, were contracted to help the developers of the Darling Green Estate to conceptualize and develop a unique energy solution for the estate. Touchpoint Energy assisted with a range of services from architectural input to the housing design, through to the establishment of the Darling Green Utility which provides a range of utility services to the Estate including a decentralised utility concept for the estate.
Touchpoint is developing the 6MW Darling Solar project. Genesis Eco-Energy Developments provided technical support to Touchpoint through-out the development process. The solar project will see the supply of electricity to the estate and has also secured a Power Purchase Agreement with the Swartland Municipality. In addition, the project aims to supply electricity to the City of Cape Town via the City’s new power procurement process that comes on stream in 2023.
