Stellenbosch University (SU) received the very first Electrical Performance Certificate (EPC) for any building in South Africa, with its Admin B building receiving an A-rating for electrical consumption of 48 kWh per square metre. This is in adherence to the amendment to the National Energy Act of 1998 proclaimed in December 2020 by the Minister of Mineral Resources and Energy requiring building owners to publish the electrical consumption per square metre by 2022. The new legislation makes it mandatory that all building owners monitor the electrical consumption for all commercial buildings bigger than 2 000 m².
