A call for interest to agricultural producers in the Western Cape to attend energy resilience workshops.

In light of consistent load shedding and rising electricity costs, the Western Cape Department of Agriculture seeks to create awareness for agricultural producers in the Western Cape to understand the options available to them to become more energy resilient.
