The government’s programme of installing solar geysers,
. . . on the rooftops of thousands of low-income households,
. . . created direct and indirect jobs such as:
. . . . . . maintenance,
. . . . . . repair, and
. . . . . . transport of the solar power infrastructure.
These are jobs,
. . . that otherwise would not have been attained
. . . through regular energy systems.
The abundance of sunlight,
. . . which powers most green infrastructure systems,
. . . also enables households to save a big part of the money,
. . . they would have used to purchase regular energy sources.
This helps communities to tackle their other pressing needs,
. . . and improves their quality of life.
These green economy benefits,
. . . explain why the Gauteng government is insisting on the local:
. . . . . . manufacturing,
. . . . . . maintenance, and
. . . . . . transportation of photovoltaic solar panels,
. . . for projects such as the piloting of resident solar energy plants at
. . . 6 Gauteng hospitals, and
. . . 1 School a Month.
Govt. teamed up with institutions, such as the
. . . . . . Innovation Hub, and
. . . . . . Council for Scientific and Industrial Research,
. . . in the development, and piloting of projects, that are aimed at
. . . saving energy, and water resources.
At the last count early in 2017, more than
. . . 200,000 energy-saving lights had been fitted as replacements, to
. . . high-energy consumption lights.
Retrofit energy-saving lights in:
. . . . . . Street, and traffic lights,
. . . . . . Schools,
. . . . . . Hospitals, and
. . . . . . Government buildings.
