+Sean Bezuidenhout "so when Van Riebeek & Rhodes came into Africa there was roads, universities, factories and commerce? "

With an increasing number of listeners subscribing to podcasts, we've compiled a list of the top five to download.

The hefty cost savings and shift to renewable energy is being made possible by the City of Cape Town’s small-scale embedded generation programme (SSEG), which was launched late last year. It allows residents and commercial users, with installations such as solar photovoltaic (PV) systems or small wind turbines, to sell power back to the grid.
Dependence on the utility may fade now that homes can feed solar power back into the grid.
