Cape Town – A milestone was reached last week with the opening of Africa’s first all-female workforce solar panel manufacturer in Ndabeni, Cape Town.

The R26 million plant has the ability to produce approximately 20 000 solar panels a month, which will be targeted at low-income households in sub-Saharan Africa.

The facility was launched by EnerG-Africa, an African company tackling the challenges of climate change through research, development and the manufacturing of clean energy products.

The company’s intention with this new facility is to focus on making smaller solar panels to serve low-income households across Sub-Saharan Africa.

Run by an all-female team, the plant, with a maximum capacity of 15MW per annum, has created 53 jobs and will operate 24 hours a day, five days a week.
