About the Speaker...

Andrew Hugo completed his studies in Heavy Current Electrical Engineering in 1998 when he obtained his National Diploma at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (UPE). He had a bursary from Eskom, and thus that is where he started his career. At Eskom Andrew designed substations and high voltage power lines. After a few years he joined an Electrical Engineering Consultancy where the scope of exposure to different technologies was greater. During his time at this consultancy he oversaw the off-grid solar electrification of 143 Schools and Clinics in the rural Transkei. Andrew also designed the electrical connection point of the largest commercially operating solar farm in the country - Jasper Solar Farm just outside Postmasburg. In 2015 Andrew realised that his passion lies with renewable energy and joined Out the Green Box Renewable Energy Solutions and obtained his qualification as Certified Renewable Energy Professional with the Association of Energy Engineers. Since then he has designed and oversaw the installation off more than 500 kW worth of solar systems installed on domestic and commercial rooftops all around the Western Cape.
