Wind Energy

Energy Transition

Sun Energy

Renewable Energy

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?
