Africa's largest solar farm (325,480 PV modules) is now fully operational

Africa's largest solar farm (325,480 PV modules) is now fully operational!

Jasper solar farm South-Africa

The Jasper solar farm, located near Kimberley in South Africa, is now the continent's largest solar power project.
Construction was completed in October, and it is now fully operational.
With a rated capacity of 96 megawatts, Jasper will produce about 180,000 megawatt-hours of clean energy annually for
South African residents, enough to power up to 80,000 homes.

What makes this even better is that Japser won't stay the biggest solar project for long.
In the same area, in South-Africa, near the 75-megawatt Lesedi project that came online last May, a 100-megawatt
concentrated solar thermal power (CSP) project called Redstone is also under construction.

Look at that scale.
The Jasper Project generated about 1 million man-hours of paid work during construction, peaking at over 800 on-site construction jobs.

South Africa has a goal of having 18 gigawatts of renewable energy by 2…

Their Dog Died From Cancer A Few Weeks Ago

Their Dog Died From Cancer A Few Weeks Ago

It’s always sad when a pet we dearly love dies, but I bet some of us haven’t thought about how
much this effects the other pets in our family…

This kitty loved the dog so much and couldn’t sleep unless he was cuddling next to the dog, but then one
day the dog died due to cancer complications, but the love didn’t stop there.

Ever since Charlie the dog died, this sweet kitty has missed him so much that even when she watches a
video of him she misses him and sleeps better. 
It’s heart breaking but truly amazing how much this cat loved it’s best friend Charlie…

It is truly heart breaking.  I love my animals.

The caring owl

THE CARING OWL. I am from South Africa and about 4 years ago made friends with a spotted eagle owl that showed up on our farm (most probably it was rehabilitated by someone). The owl got injured and I kept it inside for a couple of months until it was well again. During this time our one old cat found out that no other cats are allowed in my study where I kept the owl and she moved in. I allowed this because she has never in her life caught a bird or mouse and was not interested in the owl at all.
During this period the owl got used to her and they regularly ate steak out of my hand together. Once the owl was OK again I let it out, but it now comes and sleeps inside during the day, hunting freely at night. At the moment I have another injured owl that he adopted and feeds regularly (about 2 rats an evening).
The other night I was working late in my study when the owl came in with a rat. I presumed that he were going to feed it to the injured owl, but much to my surprise he flew towards…
