Big business (and small) are recognizing the obvious benefits of transitioning to renewable energy, on several levels – benefitting the bottom line, a healthier work environment, energy security and not least, the social responsibility and the ‘green’ drive to save the planet.
If your business owns its premises or has a long-term lease, and you want to enjoy the benefits of green energy, TouchPoint can provide a suitable solution, providing electricity through entirely renewable sources.
Changes in legislation, such as wheeling, will also soon allow businesses who do not own their premises or have a shorter-term lease, to purchase from green energy generators such as TouchPoint, in a cost-effective way, delivering a better deal for all parties.
The innovative funding options allow business to benefit immediately from the offset costs of PV Solar and hybrid solutions, where tariffs are lower than the existing utility supply costs, especially at peak generation times.
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.
