Alternative Energy Solutions : Free Webinar


As loadshedding continues to wreak havoc on businesses both large and small in South Africa, the last thing South Africans want to hear are excuses or unrealistic promises. The demands for an immediate end to power cuts are wholly understandable. Everyone is fed up.

However, we are in the grip of an energy crisis that has been many years in the making and will take years to resolve.

In an effort to assist with this plight, the RMI has developed an advocacy program for its members on Alternative Energy Solutions to assist in combatting the devastating effects of the current loadshedding on their businesses.

We have a diverse membership which ranges from SMMEs to corporates and thus developed a program that would educate and inform you on the various available solutions that would best suit your specific places of business.

Please join us for a webinar on Alternate Energy Solutions to be presented by Fouche Wiid of Smart Solar Africa.
– Date:  6 November 2023
– Time:  09:00 – 10:30
– Presenter: Fouche Wiid from Smart Solar Africa

*NOTE: this is a repeat of the webinar held 26 October, in case you missed it.
