Africa's Largest Solar Carport to Open At Garden City Mall in a Week's Time

Africa's largest solar carport is set to be opened at Garden City mall, a year down the line since its construction started.

According to Solarcentury, the company behind the construction, they have used the dual-mode technology which is a highly innovative energy solution that provides solar energy in the daytime meaning less is used from the grid; and when the grid is down, the system also reduces the consumption of costly diesel back up. Essentially, the system is able to operate in either mode.

This dual-mode system ensures a consistent energy supply whilst reducing diesel and grid consumption, so as well as being a more environmentally friendly energy solution, it helps reduce energy bills for Garden City's retail tenants.
