Emira Doubles Down On Resource Reduction
Emira Property Fund finalised resource- reduction projects at two of its Gauteng properties in recent months.
The first project, the 22500m2 Randridge Mall in Randpark Ridge, has added a 10900-panel solar farm, installed on the mall’s roof and across the car port area.
Emira says the system can produce about 1.2MW of electricity per day, helping to save 2GW of grid electricity a year.
At One Highveld, a retail warehouse property in Centurion, the focus is on rainwater harvesting.
The site is a pilot case for Emira, which has seem a 73% reduction in municipal water use thanks to their efforts.
The system uses a storage tank, filtration unit and the site’s natural slope to collect and filter water, allowing it to be used for consumption.
