Green Cheese – Fairview Doing its Bit for the Environment

Fairview goatsSolar panels may not be the answer for every energy application, but they sure do make a difference, especially in a sunny country like South Africa.

I was really happy to read that my favourite wine farm and cheese making establishment – Fairview – is just installing a flotilla of solar panels in its cheese-making factory. They need huge amounts of hot water in the process to turn out their delicious goats and cows milk cheeses. The fuel used to heat the water will be reduced by two thirds once the solar panels are up and running –still not quite carbon neutral but a huge improvement.

A big thumbs up to Fairview and here’s hoping that more businesses will follow their lead!
