Popular African restaurant, moyo Cape Town, is offering diners a unique and one of a kind culinary experience. Moyo worked closely together with New Southern Energy (NSE) and other collaborators in taking a bold step to becoming the first-of-its-kind, fully sustainable organic food market at the V & A Waterfront, Cape Town. The food market opened in November last year, allowing local and international patrons to enjoy the fresh and unique dining concept.Diners are now able to enjoy the fresh sea breeze on the edge of the waterfront canals, with a fresh food market that makes use of a sophisticated aquaponics system that grows organic vegetables for use in the main kitchen and food stalls.

NSE worked closely with moyo to understand the needs of the food market before designing the energy system. NSE installed a 22 kW gird-tie photovoltaic (PV) solar array over the outdoor arcade to provide the food market with renewable energy. As a result, the aquaponics system does not use any additional energy from Eskom and showcases a sustainable and environmentally conscious way of living. Excess energy produced by the solar panels will be used in the main kitchen, further reducing reliance on Eskom.

Guests are able to enjoy a dining experience that is environmentally sustainable. Urban Farm designed the unique aquaponics micro-ecosystem. Consisting of fish, microbes, worms and vegetables. A wide variety of vegetables are grown at the food market and provides the outdoor food stalls and main kitchen with a constant supply of fresh, completely-organic vegetables.This creates a truly sustainable way of growing and enjoying healthy vegetables.

NSE’s PV solar panels create direct current (DC) when the sun shines. All the appliances in the moyo kitchen and food market use alternating current (AC). An inverter is used to convert DC to AC for use in the food market. The PV solar panels are north facing and set at an angle of 26° to maximise the direct sun shine in winter and summer. The average production of energy is closely monitored and produces roughly 98 kWh per day. On the glorious Cape Town days, patrons will be able to enjoy the shade provided by the solar panels.

Saving Energy and Saving Money
The PV solar system will produce approximately 36,000 kWh per annum. The cost of electricity at the V&A waterfront is R1.50 (2012/2013) per kWh. This means that moyo will save R 54,000 in the first year. The investment in renewable energy by moyo will pay itself off in seven years. The system will last longer than 20 years and will be regularly maintained to ensure continued optimum performance.
NSE will be monitoring the performance of the system through a sophisticated remote metering solution. The energy produced by the solar panels and the overall performance of the system can be viewed online from anywhere in the world. This empowers moyo and NSE to quickly identify any issues with the performance of the system.
