NMMU will soon launch a new cost-saving bicycle and scooter pilot project. This project will see an initial ten staff members use solar battery-powered bicycles and scooters to get around North and South campuses, while their vehicles remain under a new covered parking facility hosting solar panel.

The solar energy from these panels will be fed directly into the university’s electricity grid in yet another move to expand the use of renewable energy at the university.
