February 14th, 2012, Published in Articles: Vector

Members of the KwaZulu-Natal Society for the Blind are assisting Magnet with its current Eskom project, a joint initiative to save energy through the use of energy saving showerheads and water restrictors for taps. According to Magnet managing director Brian Howarth, the team, who are employed by the company, have already prepared over 8000 energy saving devices for installation. Tasks include fitting showerheads with energy saving devices and labelling and packaging these units for delivery and installation throughout the country. The company is contracted by Eskom to assemble, distribute and install new energy saving showerheads to organisations with multiple shower facilities at no cost to approved applicants.
