This is a unique social impact opportunity as the first Sun Exchange solar project powering an affordable housing complex.

Mitchell’s Plain is a South African suburb originally built by the apartheid government in the 1970s to house victims of forced removals in the City of Cape Town. Today, in post-apartheid South Africa, Mitchelle’s Plain has grown into a diverse, bustling community and faces an urgent need for safe, affordable housing.

Watergate Apartments, located within Watergate Estate, is a first-of-a-kind development built to address this need. The complex is designed with the utmost regard for the safety, quality of life and community-oriented living of its residents. It includes state-of-the-art security, communal gardens, children’s play areas and easy access to public transport. The mixed-use project includes 897 homes as well as a thriving retail complex.

The developer’s desire to install solar is driven by the vision of making Watergate Estate a model of sustainable urban living that inspires pride among residents, as well as a desire to reduce energy costs and relay savings to the families and individuals who inhabit the complex.
