TAG SOLVENT AND SOLAR POWER
TAG Solvent Products has made a large investment into solar power for its head office and branches. The reasons are multifaceted :
Reliable power supply. Due to the constraints faced by our aging and poorly maintained power supply and the frequent and lengthy power cuts due to load shedding and cable theft, power supply is a real threat to business success. Solar power ensures virtual maintenance free uninterrupted power supply.
It is a way for our company to greatly reduce our carbon footprint. With peak combined power production at approximately 1MWh we are reducing our carbon footprint by up to 1 ton per day.
Solar is an upfront investment in reducing our long term operating expenses.
