Salomon Senekal High School | 32.18 kW | Viljoenskroon, South Africa
Salomon Senekal High School is the community high school in the farming town of Viljoenskroon, home to approximately 500 learners.
Viljoenskroon is the first town to get its community buildings solar powered through the Sun Exchange, and marks the first of a series of projects in South Africa’s Northern Free State, a landlocked province with vast open lands that are the heart of the country's corn industry.
Community leaders in the town reached out to Sun Exchange to take electricity service delivery into their own hands, to get their schools and retirement homes solar powered at no upfront costs, to reduce their ever increasing electricity bills and become more energy self sufficient.
Purchasing solar cells for this project means you’ll be a clean energy generator, earning a rental income for a period of 20 years, whilst supporting the provinces aspirations of having a sustainable energy supply, starting with the highest social impact sector - education.
You can also opt to donate a portion of your rental income to the ‘Overberg Fire Protection Association’ that works to educate and implement fire prevention strategies.
