Help 1 million South Africans Save Water & Energy

The Alliance to Save Energy continues to work to secure more funds to further support our project in the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality. Last month, in honor of South Africa Water Week, the Alliance sent out an email solicitation to supporters seeking donations. We produced a video that is currently on our web site ( that we hope will continue to promote this important project.

Specialized Equipment Used for Testing

We continue to work on inspecting and assessing pump stations throughout the Municipality. The team uses the specialized testing equipment that was purchased last year for measuring flows and recording electricity usage at selected pump stations.  We are in the process of drafting more assessment reports.

As more funding comes in we will be able to expand our inspections of all pipelines and pump stations.  We look forward to implementing our proposed efficiency interventions that would include optimizing pumping operations and supply zones, replacing plant and equipment, redesigning and replacing switchgear, rescheduling pumping operations, and returning pumps to best efficiency point.
