Bokamoso Solar plant project in South Africa operational


Bokamoso Solar plant project located in the North West Province of South Africa has started commercial operations after achieving full compliance in mid-November this year.

Developed on a 150-hectare piece of land, the 67.9MW solar facility is currently the largest solar PV power project in the province, with an installation of approximately 236,580 solar panels generating 177,660MWh of the much-needed green electricity each year. It is enough to meet the needs of 30,000 average South African households or surrounding.

This power plant and several others currently under construction, have put the North West province on the map as a player in the renewable energy sector, to not only deliver additional power to the country’s national grid but also benefit the rural communities through impact economic development programs.
