At the inauguration of the 86MW Mulilo-Sonnedix-Prieska PV project in South Africa, Prieska Mayor Howard Tshume thanked Sonnedix and Mulilo on behalf of the Siyathemba Municipality for investing in education and local business, saying: “This plant will enable small businesses to emerge – thank you for choosing this area to develop our society.” The project required over 1.6 million man-hours to build, half of which were locally sourced. In addition to leveraging local manpower during construction, Mulilo-Sonnedix-Prieska made a direct contribution to the local community in 2015, and at its inauguration provided an additional financial contribution to the Prieska Guardian Angels school and its 150 pupils, helping to finance its comprehensive rehabilitation.
