I support Solar energy as a clean form of energy and believe government should play a stronger leadership role in this regard. We would like to see solar panels on all roofs in South Africa.

Was convinced by a guest from Germany who has been using solar energy for more than 20 years. We are looking into solutions at our guesthouse.

Be the change you want to see!!!

Installed 2 solar geysers; built a compost toilet; recycling all kitchen waste - with the help of some red wrigglers (earthworms) for the organic stuff.

I don't currently own a propoerty, however if I did I would have installed solar pv panels ages ago (to at least generate about 60% of my household energy requirement). My way of influencing is through the reserach work that I am doing for the City of Johannesburd to develop a strategy and a financing model that will assist the City to do a mass rollout of solar water heater geysers.

No more coal, absolutely no nuke power. Being a 3rd World country with no capacity to even maintain the status quo, expansion of nuclear facilities is a chilling prospect. Renewables need to be fully embraced ASAP.

The one area of housing that potentially become the leader in this debate is in the realm of informal settlements. These are places that need to be developed in time - and there is little chance that the city will be 'able' to accommodate them in regards to electricity etc. Solar needs to play a major role in this...because even in the winter time the sun shines. Introducing solar for electricity capture will also make these places safer as it will help to reduce the amount of electricity 'borrowing' that occurs (crossing lines very close above people's heads...

Our company`s name is Ezelanadle Namanzi Management. We are supplying and installing 100 litre low presure systems in low cost housing areas in the Western Cape.Certain political organisations are now saying to these communities they can have there solar systems free if they put there names on a list , as this is only for votes as the systems never get installed.
Alan in Eastern Cape - Jeffrey's Bay

Every house in South Africa should have a solar geyser.
The ESKOM subsidy is rip-off. Why be forced to buy a solar geyser for R16 000 for a R4 000 rebate when you can install one for R8 000? Municipalities should pay for installation. You are then charged monthly for say 60 monts - depending on what you can afford.

We don't need more power - we can save and make enough to survive. We need alternative options and fast!

We may not win the soccer world cup, or have first class infrastructure and social services but we CAN be the first to have a real strategy behind climate change and sustainable infrastructure, we CAN be the first to make it happen and gain REAL support from the Nation!

Come on SA - let's be brave and show the the rest of the West how it's done!

Love

Renewable energy can supply base load power contrary to some opinion in government. If DSM is a priority and a mix of renewables is used, RE has the ability to replace nuclear & coal both of which externalise costs to the detrement of labour, the public and the environment.
Shamim in Western Cape (Cape Town)

(04 January 2011)
No coal is a no-brainer.

We have to be cleaner and more careful not only of how we use the "fossil fuels" but also reduce the load we place on the environment. we are poisoning ourselves and our children if we continue as we have been
Simric in Western Cape (Cape Town)

The only thing that would stop you making the right decision about energy investment is a/ lack of intelligence and capacity in the department or b/ bribery by the existing big players. Both would be a tragic statement. Do the right thing for our country and the planet!

Rob in Western Cape (Cape Town)

Can you imagine what impact could have been achieved right now - in energy savings and jobs - if R 9 billion had been invested in solar water heaters at household level instead of the pebble bed nuclear reactors?

Go to Israel, Greece, turkey and Europe and ask why are we who have so much bewtter sun, so far behind in our utilization of it.
We are so good in our land conservation, now it's time to get and keep out air clean and reduce carbon emissions. Lets be intelligent and use what is at hand - it has so many spin-off good effects, especially health and job creation.

Going nuclear means nuclear waste and pollution for many generation to come and exorbitant investments and debts (1 Trillion + in rands), whereas loww maintenance solar devices would create lots of work and minimum pollution.

It is extremely short-sighted to turn to coal-fired energy resources just because they yield more pickings for corrupt politicians. This choice will have consequences that will affect future generations including the descendants of the here-today-gone-tomorrow corrupt individuals in the government. In the name of humanity, think a little further.

It is only the vested interests of a few officials that stand in the way of this project. We cannot let the greed of those few ruin our chances of a healthier, greener economy and a healthier environment!I believe there are still enough honest and principled people in government to clear the way for clean energy (no, NOT nukes!) for the good of all.

Honorable leaders, this should be a must-do green economy programme. It should create jobs quickly and can provide excellent training opportunities to move people from low-skills to mid-skills employability. Consider running it as an extended public works programme (as was done successfully in Kuyasa). This is a first rate opportunity to demonstrate thate "economic development", not just "economic growth" can be achieved here in South Africa.

South African government could buy four million free solar water heaters for R60 billion. Four million solar water heaters would displace 12,000,000 MW hours of electricity per year. This is a no brainer

Charlene in Gauteng - All Areas

I feel that there is a gray area when it comes to who gets these units. Us middle class folk completely fall out when it comes to benefetting from this scheme. We earn to much to qualify for one from the government and we are to poor to afford a solar system ourselves even with the Eskom rebate. And at the end of the day we have no choice but to cough up for the hiking electricity tariff where relieve is brought to other people.

South Africa showed the world (and FIFA) how to host a successful world cup in 2010 - now it is time to show the world we are capable of other, far greater achievements, that will have a lasting, positive impact on the entire world.

Make the CORRECT decision, lead the way and do NOT waste any more time and money building coal-fired power stations.

Stop polluting, and unneccessarily increasing health care costs!

Do it for the sake of all South Africans and the world!

Why can our goverment not get the same consultants to prove to them the facts that should be obvious? What about our devastating CO2 emmision rate and the terrible unemployment rate in our country! Why can we as the leader on the continent not set an example to the rest of Africa? Like we did against all odds with the WOrld CUP??
Thanks for the opportunity to voice our concerns. Can we not get this on open facebook for the larger public to voice their concerns as well?
Leigh in Gauteng (Johannesburg)

Climate change is the most pressing issue facing the entire planet. We need to stop making 'plans' for the future, instead we should do something 'now'. Planning to rely on dirty energy for the next few decades is irresponsible. Government/big business must stop making excuses

Meeting energy demands through the burning of fossil fuels (including oil and natural gas), in the face of rapidly changing climate, is no longer a feasible option. The risks are too great.

South Africa (and the world at large) needs to both reduce its energy demand and have that reduced demand met by renewable, clean sources, of which solar is the best option.
