Solar Turtle

About

SolarTurtle provides innovative, off-grid energy solutions for communities in Africa. Headed up by Ugesi Gold’s James van der Walt, Gannie Nobel of RexiVista and Alastair Armstrong of AM Solar, the PowerTurtle (2nd generation PowerTurtles) is a sustainable solar solution for Pheasant Folly Primary school in South Africa, launched in March 2016 after investment from EnergyNet’s Not Just Talking Fund.
 
With crime and vandalism previously playing major roles in the disuse of solar PV power in South Africa, the PowerTurtle model is designed to provide secure, reliable and sustainable electricity for schools like Pheasant Folly Primary School.
