OMEYA?S design and lifestyle is set to engage its surroundings in an eco-friendly way. Omeya?s request for proposal launched today set a new standard in estate planning and management with regards to energy savings strategies.
Prospective suppliers of solar energy have been requested to propose for the supply of solar water heating systems for the estate and its residents. It is no secret that the cost of electricity is set to increase substantially over the next decade and that energy sources like the sun must be utilised in countries like Namibia.
The Omeya Development will be subsidising the cost of installation of approved solar heating systems to encourage all residents at Omeya to use solar heating for their hot water supply. Solar power does have its challenges when it comes to reliability and architectural integration into an estate.
To this end Omeya will be focussing on solar energy providers that can supply reliable backup service as well as address the architectural requirements of this fine estate. Omeya management is excited in engaging this project to make this proposed township one of the most eco-friendly estates in Africa.
With more than 380 houses, over 200 townhouse units, a clubhouse, golf academy, hotel, conference facilities, offices, crafts centre, wellness centre, indoor sport centre as well as a golf course set to be built at Omeya, the focus on energy saving will be part of Omeya?s contribution to an ecofriendly environment.
When visiting Omeya one understands the passion of the developers to make this estate as eco-friendly as possible. It is estimated that through the use of solar power Omeya will be saving about 3.6 Megawatt of power per annum once at full capacity, with an estimated cost saving of about N$4 million per annum.
