Stellenbosch University solar project

Solar Paving at  Stellenbosch University, South Africa

On February 10, 2022, our team in South Africa installed 24 solar pavers in series at Stellenbosch University’s “Launch Lab”. This installation is a core element of the curriculum to help educate students about solar paving. This site will be used for demonstrations, meetings and events.

Stellenbosch University was recently named the hub of a Postgraduate Programme in Renewable and Sustainable Energy Studies by the South African National Energy Research Institute (SANERI), a division of the Central Energy Fund (CEF).

The University is paving the way to cut fossil fuel emissions and encourage energy-efficient buildings. Solar Earth will be front and center in moving Stellenbosch towards a carbon-neutral university.
