Western Cape Finance MEC hands out Capella lamps at 2012 Budget Speech
In his 2012 budget speech to the Western Cape Provincial Legislature, Minister Alan Winde, the MEC for Finance, Economic Development and Tourism, said "I would like to call on all the citizens of the Western Cape to switch to energy efficient lighting at home. This small step will help us to reduce our carbon footprint and move to green."
His speech also focused on the importance of creating jobs in the local manufacturing sector. In support of these statements, he gave each attendee a locally designed and manufactured Capella LEDlamp. Designed in-house using technology that MarulaLED has patented, the Capella LEDlamp is manufactured locally by Tellumat.
