The impressive sight of solar panels on the roof of Bayside Mall in Tableview, Cape Town, with Table Mountain in the distance. The rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) installation is generates 500kWp, with 2,108 panels covering 3,300m².
Bayside Mall’s energy efficiency interventions include upgrades to LED lighting and improvements in the heating, ventilation and air conditioning system. The projects have yielded consistent monthly energy savings averaging at 11% so far, with the hot summer months expected to bump savings up to 17%.
waste-to-energy electricity generation plant has been constructed and will introduce a further 250 to 330 kWh per day in the near future.
