Microcare celebrates its 27th birthday this month are pleased to announce that they’ve manufactured the 5000th 12V Solar Home System.
In 2014 a pilot project was launched in Nelson Mandela Bay which was later adopted by the Dept of Energy to use local innovation to bring power to those who don’t have within the Informal Settlements of South Africa.
As Microcare celebrates its 27th birthday this month they are pleased to announce that they have manufactured the 5000th 12V Solar Home System.
Every one of these units has been manufactured by local technicians and installed in communities around South Africa where homes did not have access to any electricity.
From the onset of the project the goal was to use local products to create jobs, develop skills and stimulate the economy. With such local content, they have been able to achieve these GOOD NEWS goals with so much more to come on the horizon.
While the challenge to give power to every South African still remains, Microcare is committed to being part of growing our economy by innovating local solutions and products.
