Eskom and BRACe go Green

By: Brace  11-11-2011

ESKOM has joined hands with BRACe to find green solutions for Buccleuch.

The pilot program has a two pronged approach: First households will be encouraged to install smart meters which will help residents save money and electricity by using peak and off-peak charges instead of the inclining block tariff system.

Second, ESKOM will be using Buccleuch as a pilot area for a project where the University of Johannesburg and the University of Stuttgart will provide state of the art green energy solutions with the aim of allowing Buccleuch to produce its own electricity and not rely completely on the grid.
