Our mission

Our mission is to accelerate the energy transition in the Overberg District and to shape this transition to be socially and economically beneficial

Energy Transition

For decades many of us took energy for granted. Light, sound, warmth, mobility, entertainment and the production of food and other goods were always ‘just there’.

Solar Energy

Solar energy is radiant light and heat from the sun harnessed using a range of ever-evolving technologies such as solar heating, photovoltaic, solar thermal energy, solar architecture and artificial photosynthesis.

Wind Energy

Wind power is extracted from air-flow using wind turbines or sails to produce mechanical or electrical power.

What We Do
Our mission is to accelerate the energy transition in the Overberg District and to shape this transition to be socially and economically beneficial to all the people in the Overberg.
Energy transition is a shift from a system dominated by finite (fossil and fissile) energy towards a flow energy-based system (renewable).
The Overberg is a place of natural abundance and wealth; we have sun, wind and the sea that feeds our floral kingdom and creates the home to our whales and sea life. Why don’t we ‘consult the genius of our own place’ (Alexander Pope) and create renewable energy from it?

Donate to help !

We do not accept funding from governments or corporations, instead we rely on the goodwill and generosity of people like you to continue our work.
