According to the terms of the agreement, EP will install a 2.2MW rooftop system at KC's Epping manufacturing site.

Once the project is completed, the rooftop system at KC's Epping facility will allow an annual energy production of 3,478 MWh per year which will save over 3,130 tons of CO2 emissions each year , equivalent to powering 1,030 medium residential homes in the country every year.

Charl du Plessis , General Manager of EP Power, confirms that the design of the system was developed in close collaboration with KC's local and international engineers and project managers to ensure compliance with regulatory and design specifications.

Says du Plessis , "The new  rooftop solar photovoltaic systems will enhance KC's capacity to manage electricity consumption, while also enabling them to substantially increase their renewables penetration. This is especially exciting to us, and we are proud to be part of the KC journey to meeting their 2030 sustainability goals."

Steven Hayes,  General Manager of KC Sub-Saharan Africa says, "We are committed to reducing our environmental footprint and this project will contribute towards helping us meet our 2030 goal to reduce total emissions by 50% compared to 2015 globally.

"The installation of this  rooftop solar photovoltaic  system and partnership with Energy Partners is a significant step towards achieving our renewable energy targets, and we are proud to be part of the solution in creating a more sustainable future for South Africa."
