Green Electricity

In one of the most innovative responses to the quest for bringing ‘Greener’ property developments to market, the Lord Trust is proud to have included in Lords View a unique offering - GREEN electricity. The conversion of methane gas released by a land fill site to electricity is a new concept in South Africa and brings with it the following advantages:

  • Taking advantage of a previously unutilized resource – waste material.
  • Participation in the global effort to address climate change.
  • Global and local environmental benefits from reduced harmful emissions.
  • The end user in Lords View is able not only to have its building certified as ‘Green’ but the development in which it is situated is now also a ‘Green’ development.
  • The benefits of having a dual electricity supply is that individual backup generators are not required, for those companies participating. These generators are both expensive and have a large impact on the environment.
  • Back up electricity which means that the tenants of Lords View will not be effected by the rolling black outs occurring in SA, for those companies participating.
  • Energy is created from a renewable source leading to less dependency on fossil fuel.

We believe that as technological advances that benefit the environment are made, it is an imperative for developers to make use of them. It is with this in mind that Lords View incorporates the latest technology in bringing down the carbon footprint of the development. This South African first positions Lords View as one of the ‘Greenest’ industrial and logistics parks to date, and sets the bench mark against which future developments will be compared.

In the ever more environmentally aware South African and international landscape, Lords View offers international and local companies the ability to be part of a total environmental solution. Thus as traditionally is the case the environment issues will be considered not only in the building but in the utilities supplied as well. Huge environmental accolades can be achieved by looking at the total carbon footprint of the company. If your premises are situated in Lords View you are already significantly closer to achieving your environmental goals.
