Cape of Good Hope SPCA chooses AWPower for a Grid-tied Solar PV Solution

Cape of Good Hope SPCA, the founding society of the SPCA movement in South Africa and the oldest animal welfare organisation in the country, has chosen AWPower to implement a grid-tied solar solution, with additional modular battery backup systems to support essential loads.

With a payback of around 5 to 6 years, savings on electricity and energy security during loadshedding, SPCA Cape of Good Hope has made a smart decision choosing AWPower as its solar provider.


The SPCA’s office and critical life-saving machines in the veterinary hospital will have power if the grid is down, thanks to the battery backups, while solar panels produce electricity during the day, creating savings on electricity.

The modular design of the system makes it easy for SPCA to expand the system to include more battery capacity in the future and energy savings from the solar panels are maximised by utilising the full allowable electricity generation limit imposed by the City of Cape Town for the allocated area.


Moyo Ndukwana, CEO of Cape of Good Hope SPCA says, “We have chosen the grid-tied solar system with modular battery backup from AWPower as we have opted to streamline our electricity usage ensuring that essential operations can continue during loadshedding and when the electricity goes down.”

Says Christiaan Hattingh, Managing Director of AWPower, “We are delighted to assist SPCA Cape of Good Hope to streamline their business continuity. The SPCA does a lot of good work for animal rights and protection and AWPower is happy to be a supporter of this.”
