Prieska Grid Connected 20 MW Solar Park, South Africa

South African Large Scale Grid Connected Solar Park Programme

Prieska Grid Connected 20 MW Solar Park, South Africa

Sector: Renewable energy
Project type:  Solar energy

Client: Mulilo Renewable energy

The project envisages the construction and operation of a solar park with the installed capacity of 20.65 MWp. The solar park will be equipped with several arrays of photovoltaic (PV) panels. Produced electricity will be supplied to the Eskom electricity network. Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from electricity generation for the solar park amount to zero. The reduction of GHG emissions as a result of the project implementation will be achieved due to reduction of CO2 emissions from combustion of fossil fuel at the existing grid-connected power plants and plants which would likely be built in the absence of the project activity.

The crediting period of the project is 01/11/2013 – 31/10/2023.

Total estimated GHG emission reduction over the 10-year crediting period is 383 141 tCO2e.
