Presentation outline Based on an analysis of all the costs presented above, projects are moved to a new and more suitable area. All SWH Units for Naledi had already been procured when the project was terminated. Selection of a new area: Relocation form Naledi to Maluti-a-Phofung. Free State Province had already engaged the DoE on a Business Plan to roll out SWH Units. Maluti-a-Phofung was then approved to take over the roll out from Naledi Municipality . Eskom has submitted a report confirming that a feasibility study is underway prior to the start of the actual installations. 02/21/20 -Confidential- 8 2011/2012 SWH Fiscal update Presentation outline Emfuleni , Musina and Umsobomvu approved for the current financial year. An allocation of R54,400m each was approved for the current financial year under schedule 7 of DoRA, whilst R60 million was allocated to Umsobomvu municipality, under schedule 6. 1st and 2nd Quarters of the financial year focused on the finalisation of the business plans and contracts. A feasibility study is necessarily undertaken in each municipality to allow clear remedial actions prior to the start of the roll out. Musina Municipality has appointed Roschcon to undertake the feasibility study and Umsobomvu has issued an advertisement in January 2012 and
currently finalising the procurement process. The actual installations planned to start in March/April 2012. 02/21/20 -Confidential- 9 SWH Rebate Level Revision Presentation outline In June 2011, Eskom revised the claim rates due a threat on diminishing rebate funds. The above constraint prompted Eskom to review the Rebate Progamme as follows: On 11 April 2011 Eskom announced the downward revision of the rebate levels as shown on the table below and later approved R500 million to continue. 02/21/20 : -Confidential- 10 Installations per Region Presentation outline Above graph represents total installations to date, including installations received but not yet processed.

It is an intervention that is outcome based with the incentive flowing after delivery of the intervention, and subject to verification of the savings. The solar water heating system will have a deemed savings value. It is envisaged that the rebate will be attractive initially, in order to kick-start the market. Over time, it is predicted that costs will be reduced through economies of scale. -Confidential- 14 Funding requirements Total funding required for Solar

The Accord has been signed on behalf Organised Labour, Business, Community and Government. The Green Economy Accord recognise that the installation of SWH systems can help with climate-change goals and increase the number of South Africans who have access to hot water while creating jobs in manufacturing and installation. Business committed to working with Government to develop, establish and then publicise a sustainable funding plan to support the installation of 1 million SWH systems. It should be noted that the success of localisation within the Green Economy Accord depends on its implementation together with other Accords such as Local Procurement Accord, National Skills Development Accord and Basic Education Accord because of cross cutting elements 02/21/20 -Confidential-
18 SWH: Localisation Presentation outline The following localisation issues are addressed under Commitment One (Green Economy Accord): Increase the rollout to one million units: In order to achieve the targets for SWH installations, it will require financing, enterprise development, training and policy coordinated across all stakeholders. Business committed to working with Government to develop, establish and then publicise a sustainable funding plan to support the installation of 1 million SWH systems Improve localisation of the components: All parties commit to the drive to increased localisation of the components of the SWH systems. Government committed to ensure that incentives and regulatory measures are in place to promote greater local manufacturing of components of the SWH systems. Specific opportunities for localisation to be identified and support localisation accordingly Secure support from the industry for replaced units: Approximately 200 000 electric geysers are replaced annually by householders through payments via the insurance industry, to promote the use of locally-manufactured SWH for replacement of a damaged electric hot-water geyser 02/21/20 -Confidential- 19 SWH: Localisation... Presentation outline Secure support from the industry for replaced units : Business will work with the insurance industry to approve a manageable selection of suitable systems to be used by insurers. Business will implement a pilot by 2012 followed by a wider SWH roll-out by the insurance industry in 2013. Secure guarantees on installed units: The parties identified a potential risk with the guarantees on the SWH units, particularly i.r.o start up companies who may no longer be in business when warranties needed to be honoured. Business, government and various funding institutions including Eskom are engaging to develop proposals on warranty systems, standards and funding mechanisms to address this risk.
Promote the marketing of SWH systems: The parties recognise that it is imperative that consumers embrace the technological shift to SWH. Business therefore committed to develop with Government as well as organised labour and community organisations, national communication campaign, linked to local community initiatives and campaigns like Lead SA, Proudly SA and 49m, to educate South Africans about SWH and its benefits 02/21/20 -Confidential- 20 SWH: Localisation... Presentation outline The following localisation issues are addressed under Commitment One of the Green Economy Accord: Promote uniform technical and performance standards for SWH: The parties recognised that given South Africas unique climate conditions, the need to develop local standards for the different component parts of SWH, in order to not only support local technological development, but to also ensure that we can facilitate the introduction of imported technologies for local manufacturers. Government committed to develop the standards for the different components that make SWH units, through SABS. Business undertook to support the development of local standards for SHW at component level. 02/21/20 -Confidential- 21 SWH Allocation for 2012/13 2014/2015 Presentation outline An amount of R 4.7 billion has been allocated to achieve 1 million SWH units by 2014/2015 02/21/20 Financial Year Amount (R) 2012/2013 1 billion 2013/2014
1.7 billion 2014/2015 2 billion -Confidential- 22 Conclusion Presentation outline Progress made to date on the Solar Water Heating programme, challenges encountered and they are being resolved; That from the above figures, it is evident that the cumulative target of 250, 041 installations for the current financial year is still in sight given that about 82% of the targeted units have been installed. Budget allocated to achieve 1 million SWH units by 2014/2015. Commitments already made with respect to the Green Economy Accord to address the localisation issues to create more jobs. That work is in progress with all stakeholders to intensify the operationalisation of all identified key factors to localisation. Energy savings will only be improved through penetration of high end market, through the Standard Offer Concept 02/21/20 -Confidential- 23
