Zuid Afrikaans Hospital

Zuid Afrikaans Hospital is owned by a not for profit organization. It was founded more than 100 years ago to treat patients from the concentration camps after the Anglo-Boer war. The hospital has 134 beds. Zuid Afrikaans Hospital is a large scale demonstration site with sufficient roof space for solar collectors and hot water storage tanks. The reduction in electricity cost will improve the running cost of the only non-profit hospital in South Africa. More information on the hospital can be found via: http://www.zah. co.za/about_us/

In one year, this installation gives a solar yield of 32.84 MWh and is responsible for the avoidance of 11359.54 kilograms of CO2 emissions.
