Farmsecure Energy, a division of the Farmsecure Group, recently awarded a competitive tender to Emergent Energy for the supply of a 200kWp solar Photo Voltaic system to supplement the energy supply of the packhouse and reduce overall emissions. This system will be utilised at the technologically advanced Novo packhouse in Paarl, and will generate an amount of electricity equivalent to the demands of approximately 50 general middle-income houses.
Emergent Energy will deliver a 200kWp solar photovoltaic system to Farmsecure and Colors Fruit.
“We are delighted to have been selected as the preferred provider of this solar PV system to Farmsecure,” said Frank Spencer, CEO of Emergent Energy.
“It is a pleasure to be associated with a company that is dedicated to implementing sustainability best practices. It will go a long way towards reducing the carbon emissions of the packhouse, as well as provide energy security in a context of rapidly increasing electricity tariffs,” Spencer added.
Emergent Energy provides energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions and consulting services to southern African enterprises, using state-of-the-art technologies and methodologies. The company seeks to contribute positively to the development of the southern African energy sector in ways that protect and enhance the ecological services that sustain them.
