Green fundis invited to enter the Eskom eta Awards

For 25 years Eskom has been encouraging energy efficiency by celebrating those who have made substantial savings in their businesses, homes, schools and communities through the Eskom eta Awards.

The 2014 awards are now open and Eskom wants you to enter! If you are a clean energy innovator or a homeowner who has reduced your household consumption by installing energy efficient technologies this could be your chance to win big.

Eskom ETA Awards for Energy Efficiency

Eskom believes that good work in this area should be rewarded which is why winners could take home a whopping R30 000 and runners up the tidy sum of R5000.  Finalists also receive wide-spread publicity on their projects in an effort to share their innovative work and encourage others to follow suit.

Entries can be submitted in the following eight categories:

  • Community
  • Commercial
  • Industrial
  • Innovation
  • Energy savings in households
  • Energy efficiency awareness
  • Residential
  • Young designers (individuals and groups)

Dr Steve Lennon, the Eskom Group Executive of Sustainability says: “For many years we have been focusing on encouraging energy efficiency in South Africa. The quality and quantity of applications to the awards are improving every year, and we see much more focus on sustainable energy solutions. We believe that South Africans are embracing the idea of energy efficiency and starting to take responsibility for reducing their energy footprint. It’s also great to see the commercial and industrial sectors prioritising energy efficiency.”

To that end, Eskom invites you to enter this year’s eta Awards. Whether you are an individual, a company or an organisation – your idea or innovation could win! 

Get cracking and ensure your entries reach Eskom by 23:58pm on 8 August 2014. To learn more, visit the eta Awards website:
