Holms and Friends, formerly Omnibus Engineering and a member of SESSA, the Sustainable Energy Society of Southern Africa, has installed a solar water heating system at the University of Pretoria’s Onderstepoort campus. With a total collector surface of 672m2 this is the biggest glazed installation in Southern Africa. The installation meets the warm water needs of the university’s new energy-efficient residences which house 550 students. It also prevents the output of 450 tons CO2 and saves 600 980 litres of water per year.
