Development of social infrastructure to improve the quality of life of residents within targeted communities. Three of the key programmes funded by REISA since 2016 are:
REISA’s Solar Street Lights Projects aimed to improve community safety and security, whilst taking advantage of environmentally friendly technology by opting for renewable solar energy. Once installed the running costs are zero and maintenance is minimal. Benefits include: Improved night-time safety and improved community cohesion. Both street light projects were implemented in partnership with the Gamagara Local Municipality who is now responsible for the maintenance of these in both Deben and Olifantshoek.
The Mapoteng Home Improvement Project Feasibility Study was initiated in 2018 when the community enquired about the provision of solar panels for their homes. This was a request to assist them in reducing the exorbitant electricity costs. REISA responded by introducing a feasibility study of 5 RDP homes. The aim of the feasibility study is to improve the energy efficiency of the identified home by installing solar water geysers, insulated ceilings and electrical reticulation and to determine the budget required for implementing the Project for all the identified homes. A decision on the implementation of the full Project will be taken in 2020/2021.
