Kuyasa is South Africa’s first registered Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) project activity and it aims to retrofit existing low-income houses with solar water heaters in order to provide hot water on demand, insulated ceilings to improve the thermal efficiency of the household units and two compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) each to provide energy efficient lighting. The savings of electricity consumption will result in emission reductions of 2.85 tonnes of CO2 per household per year.
