South Africa: Project to Bring Light to Kwazulu
: "A R300m public private partnership project to supply 50000 solar home systems to houses in northern KwaZulu-Natal was launched at the weekend. The venture follows the success of a pilot project funded by the Dutch Programme for Co-operation with Developing Markets in which 400 solar home systems were installed in the remote region... [Power utility] NuRa Managing Director Marius Willemse said yesterday the solar electricity would be provided on a fee-for-service basis with the R58 basic charge being in line with the cost of candles, batteries and paraffin for rural families. .. [NuRa will establish] energy stores to service specific regions. Each energy store serviced its customers and communicated with the NuRa headquarters." 3:20:25 PM
