KFC IS GOING GREEN WITH SOLAR ENERGY

KFC’s across Port Elizabeth are the first in South Africa to embrace clean energy with SolarAfrica. The solar energy solution provides an alternative
to owning a solar system, offering fast-food franchises the opportunity to get cleaner energy without paying for the system

With no capital investment required and cheaper energy bills, KFC franchises can save up to 15% on monthly energy costs.

In early October 2017, after a quick three day installation per site, all four KFC outlets switched to solar seamlessly. The solar systems at the two smaller KFC outlets, 17th Quarter and Walmer, produced around 2000 kWp of energy, whilst the solar systems at the Korsten and Commercial Road outlets, produced over 3 000 kWp of energy in one month delivering a savings of over R1000 respectively. Projected savings are aimed at approximately R14 000 each year escalating to around R70 000 over five years.

AKM Foods’ General Manager, Wayne Thoresson, believes that it is every business’s responsibly to lessen their carbon footprint and do their bit
for the country, “the reason we looked solar was because of the synergy it has with us and what we wanted to do to with reducing our carbon
footprint, with the wind farms we looked at, solar made more sense. We have some big properties and the right pitched roofs which lends itself to
solar energy; we are in Africa so we have a lot of sun most of time and it makes sense to do it.”

With SolarAfrica’s clean energy solution, companies can go green and start saving from day one. SolarAfrica provides easy access to alternative
sources of cheaper and cleaner electricity, making a tangible difference in the way energy is consumed
