The consortium, led by Mainstream Renewable Power Company, announced that it had achieved preferred bidder status from the SA Ministry of Energy for two large-scale wind power projects with a total production capacity of 250MegaWatts. Representing an investment of approximately R5.8bn, the two wind farms are part of the fourth stage of the SA government’s procurement program for renewable energy. Last year SA has proven its budget capabilities with three solar and wind farms. Now they are being built in the Northern Cape region. The project is less expensive than coal energy and meets the growing electricity demand in the country. Mainstream is eager to play a key energy role in South Africa.
