City concludes embedded electricity generation contract with Black River Park Investments
Today the City of Cape Town signed the first small-scale embedded electricity generation contract with Black River Park Investments, an office block in Observatory.
We commend Black River Park for leading the way in the commercial real estate sector by utilising large-scale solar power systems to generate environmentally sustainable energy.
They will be producing some of the electricity to meet their own consumption demands.
Under the terms of this contract, Black River Park will feed a limited amount of extra electricity which they generate back into the City’s electricity grid and they will receive an offset against their monthly electricity accounts.
