Nioro Plastics | 473 kW | Blackheath, Cape Town

Generating Solar Power

Nioro Plastics manufacture bottles with post-consumer recycled plastic (rPET), and through Sun Exchange they are taking their operation solar powered. South Africa is number two in the world for recycling PET, and it's so sunny that solar power can make the industry truly sustainable. Every solar cell you purchase in this project will be leased to Nioro for 20 years, powering the production of plastic bottles that you might use every day!
