    Yeah, because solar just won't work in South Africa.
     
  3. Robert Skjodt , 123MW Wind Energy Facility Update...29th May 2021
    -----------------------------------
    123MW Wind Energy Facility capital cost, R6.5bn ($449.6m) ?
    ---------------------------------------
    Facility consists of 48 Wind Energy Turbines ?
    -----------------------------------------
    Construction commenced two years ago and provided jobs to about 500 workers ?
    -----------------------------------------
    “We are committed to investing in areas that have a
    long-term sustainable impact,” says Robert Skjodt.

  4. Wind turbines installed in shallow waters could meet 14,9% of national electricity demand ?
    --------------------------------------------------
    South Africa has an annual offshore wind energy production potential of 44,52 terawatt-hours
    of electricity if wind turbines were to be installed in shallow waters ?
    ----------------------------------------------------
    Calculations show that 44,52 TWh could theoretically meet 14,9% of national electricity demand ?
    --------------------------------------
    South Africa’s annual electricity consumption is slightly less than 300 TWh
