Solar Energy Could Save SA Billions

South Africa could save up to R3.7 billion per year by changing completely to solar-powered energy-efficient light bulbs, says UNEP

The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) says South Africa could save up to R3.7 billion per year by changing completely to solar-powered energy-efficient light bulbs.

In its latest report, the UN agency, which assessed what gains could be achieved by 80 countries should they shift to solar-powered alternatives, argues that should South Africa change over, the country would be able to repay the conversion costs in nine months.

Eskom currently produces most of the country's power by coal-fired power stations and it is currently applying to the National Energy Regulator of South Africa for a 16 percent year-on-year increase for the next five years.
