Doornkraal Agri is a father and son team that have a focus on perfection when it comes to producing the best fruit and vegetables in the Western Cape’s Ceres Valley. Established in the Witzenberg valley in 1990, Howard & George Gibson built their farms into a world-class Agri Enterprise. They have since added export class packing and cold storage facilities that ensures that all fruit packed at Doornkraal Agri reach the consumer as fresh as the moment it was picked. In order to reduce their OPEX and establish a more secure and sustained energy approach, a phased approach was proposed for them. The first phase will be a 506.88kWp rooftop system with diesel generator integration and soft load transfer operation. The system’s focus is to reduce the electrical bill by utilising the available sun energy and combat production interruptions and loss caused by load shedding.
