This Solar System provides for the complete lighting of this Taxi Canopy. The lights are on throughout the night with a day/night switch. The combination of LED lights and an off Grid Photo Voltaic system has made this possible. The panels are orientated East West to allow for early and late harvest of the sun. Early in the morning the batteries are still not completely empty. The battery bank consists of a bank of 2V cells. This lighting system has helped the City of Cape Town to earn Green Star Rating for this building.
20kW System incl. battery back up. Surplus energy is supplied to the grid.
