1.3 MWp, Polokwane Brewery

Polokwane, Limpopo

Polokwane Brewery is one of AB InBev’s South African breweries, known for producing some of Mzansi’s  most popular beers such as Castle Lager and Black Label. As part of SOLA’s partnership with AB InBev to supply their South African breweries with renewable power, the solar PV facility at Polokwane consists of a 1.3 MW system installed on the warehouse roof.

The PV system, which consists of over 3800 solar modules, is able to produce 2.2 million kWh of clean energy per year – enough to result in 1425 tons of GHG equivalent savings. The PV system was constructed over 12 weeks, under extremely strict health and safety protocol.
