    ----------------------------------------------
    10 MW solar electricity plant will take care of most daytime power requirements ?
    -----------------------------------------------
    This is the first phase of solar power generation ?
    ------------------------------------------------------
    The Gold plant will be looking to expand power to a possible 25 MVA ?
    -----------------------------------------------------
    A similar solar plant is being considered at Barberton, South Africa ?
