Coca-Cola Beverages South Africa (CCBSA), a bottling partner to the Coca-Cola parent company, manufactures, packages, merchandises and distributes the world-renowned branded beverages to the organization’s vast network of vending partners. Worldwide, the
organization is committed to sustainable practices and monitors its environmental impact closely.
In 2018, CCBSA embarked on a process of installing solar systems at its 11 bottling plants across South Africa, through a competitive solar engineering procurement and construction firm. A funding partner was brought on board to finance the systems and implement a power purchasing agreement (PPA) system. However, after commencing work on four sites none of which had reached practical completion, the EPC supplier exited the agreement.
