The shopping and leisure centre in Gauteng has continued its rooftop development: Having tripled its photovoltaic output, the Clearwater Mall now operates South Africa's largest solar rooftop. As before, KACO new energy Powador 60.0 TL3 solar PV inverters are delivering the power.
Since June 2015 a 1,500kW photovoltaic system on the rooftop of the shopping mall has been supplying electricity for self-use to over 250 shops, restaurants, cinemas and sports centres.
Christoph Heinermann, Managing Director of KACO new energy South Africa stated: "Clearwater Mall is an example of how convincing photovoltaic can be when everything is done properly. Thanks to the exemplary construction work of our partner Solareff and the continuously high degree of efficiency of our inverters, the yield is correct and thus fully justifies our customer's business case. That made their decision to embark on the second stage of expansion all the easier."
As part of their portfolio, Solareff (Pty) Ltd. and KACO new energy South Africa offer complete solutions based on photovoltaic power supply concepts to new commercial developments.
