In a country grappling with unprecedented energy challenges, Cape Town emerges as a beacon of hope and innovation. Fresh off ENCA’s recent interview with the Mayor of Cape Town, the city has successfully executed a Wheeling pilot project, a first for South Africa.


The Wheeling Revolution

The Wheeling system permits companies to channel excess power across the grid, paving the way for a more sustainable and energy-efficient city. Cape Town has not only redefined its energy landscape but also set a stellar example for cities around the globe.

Companies, including giants like Growth Point Properties, have tapped into the wheeling mechanism to transfer excess energy from solar panels to their other establishments in Cape Town. This ensures an alternative revenue stream for businesses and plays a pivotal role in reducing the grid demand.


The potential doesn't stop there. Data centers, the backbone of our digital age, are now poised to operate on clean energy. With heavyweights like Amazon and other global corporations under increasing pressure from investors and shareholders to adopt renewable energy, Cape Town’s Wheeling pilot is a timely response.


Why Solar Energy and Why Now?

Billing for solar power is proving to be more cost-effective than traditional energy sources. Though there are additional costs from battery storage, the long-term benefits far outweigh the initial expenses. And the broader implication? A significant relief for Eskom and a considerable reduction in load shedding.


Individual households can also jump on the bandwagon. Installing solar panels can drastically reduce dependency on traditional power grids. Global businesses and even banks now emphasize the importance of renewable energy, further highlighting the need to transition.
