Conergy modules in production

German PV group Conergy has entered the South African market for the first time, via a rooftop-PV installation.

The Hamburg-based company delivered a 62kW rooftop installation for self-consumption use at a facility for disabled people in Cape Town.

The 250 modules are expected to churn out some 97MWh of electricity a year at a cost of 0.81 rand ($0.09) per kWh.

That is 16% cheaper than the average 0.94 rand per kWh cost of electricity from South African utility Eskom, Conergy claims.

While the operators of the plant won’t receive feed-in support, they do get a rebate of 1.20 rand per kWh of electricity not taken from the grid at peak hours Log in to read complete article.
