Agricultural company Senwes has launched the first silo solar photovoltaic (PV) system in South Africa, at its Hennenman silo, in the Free State. “Around 1 120 solar panels were installed, with a total capacity of 358 kW. The total projected solar utilisation is 472 460 kWh/y, which constitutes 62% of the total electricity consumption of the Hennenman silo and will result in a significant cost saving,” Senwes CEO Francois Strydom said.
