Solar PV solution for Huis Nuweland
The management and board of Huis Nuweland decided to evaluate renewable energy for their retirement village in Newlands, Cape Town, and after considerable research, they appointed AWPower to implement a grid-tied solar PV solution as a first phase in their holistic and ongoing renewable energy project. “We are impressed with the electricity that we generate via our solar interventions on a daily basis and can confirm that the first phase was inspected and signed off by independent engineers,” said Pieter Swanepoel, Executive Director & Manager of Huis Nuweland.
Following a thorough investigation and analysis by AWPower, a grid-tied PV system was installed in November 2019 and the system included a 20kVa Inverter coupled with 21.87kWp of roof-mounted solar PV modules, with the aim of reducing consumption of electricity from the grid. Excess energy (if any) will be exported to the grid. Apart from savings, the system has also assisted Huis Nuweland to drastically reduce their carbon footprint.
“We experienced AWPower to be professional, trustworthy and available to assist at all hours. Their after-sales services really impressed us and we therefore decided to enter into further project planning and discussions with them, to take our vision regarding our renewable energy project to its final stages,” said Swanepoel.
He further commented: “We can recommend AWPower without reservation. Our board, the management, and more importantly, our residents are appreciative of their input and conduct. We are also impressed with their daily conduct and respect that they’ve shown towards our residents and staff.”
