Date: 2011

Client: Project90x2030

In 2011 the Durban Botanical Gardens became one of 15 Renewable Energy Demonstration sites setup by Project 90 x 2030 in South Africa. At the Durban Botanical Gardens two, 2.1 kW solar photovoltaic arrays are installed to run the visitors centre. They use state of the art technology to track the sun throughout the day, mimicking a plant’s leaves and demonstrating how natural systems can help us find solutions for a clean energy future.

This video is the 2nd episode of Transition SA, a six part documentary series that follows Project 90 x 2030′s team of activists and eco engineers as they bring green energy solutions to communities across South Africa and empower them to build a better future.
