Under floor cage heaters, Dental equipment, x ray machine, under water treadmill are only a few of the tools used throughout the day at TAH Animal Hospital. Going through the long list of necessary equipment used day to day in our practises, made it clear to staff that we needed to do our part in reducing our electricity foot print on the grid and in turn reducing our involvement in adding to global warming.
Research was done to determine which route would be best taken in order for our hospital to run at its optimal, but still reach our goal. When driving into TAH Bellville, there is little chance of missing our new accessories. Our first solar panel was placed in July 2015 and was followed by 159 more panels, which successfully started working in September 2015.
During sunny days TAH Bellville proudly runs off of 100% solar energy and during over cast days this amount can vary.
Since September we have saved almost 200 trees and have put 5.65 tons less co2 emissions into our atmosphere.
