Protea Heights Academy | 34.17 kW | Cape Town, South Africa

Generating Solar Power

About this project

The Protea Heights community is very proud of a school that was a dream for many years. After construction started in 2013, the community watched with great excitement as first the building and then the staff and learners grew. After only one year of operation, PHA has a formidable reputation of excellence. A natural progression is to transition the school away from a national grid which relies heavily on coal, towards clean solar energy.

Impact and benefits

Sun Exchange is now solar powering Protea Heights Academy (PHA) in sunny Cape Town. Purchase solar cells in this project to earn rental income from the electricity your cells produce. Cut the schools energy bills AND show the next generation how energy ought to be sourced.

This is a great opportunity to solar power a project that promotes progressive education, offset your carbon emissions and earn a significant passive income stream paid optionally in South African Rands or in Bitcoin, in addition to bonus payments of SUNEX and SolarCoin!

The charity for this project is Sarmie Mommiez. This is a not-for-profit organization that distributes food and support to those in need. When placing your order you can choose to donate any portion of your solar rental income to this worthwhile cause. Basically, at the click of a button, convert sunlight into sandwiches to feed the hungry for the next 20 years!
