South African Grid Connected Wind Farm Programme

Sector: Renewable energy
Project type: Wind power

The main objective of the South African Grid Connected Wind Farm Programme is to contribute to the development and promotion of renewable energy in South Africa by building a framework to secure carbon revenue for wind farm developers. The programme seeks to develop a series of grid connected wind power projects that supply clean electricity to either the national grid of the RSA or an identified consumer via RSA’s grid. Activities included into this programme envisage the installation and operation of a wind farm on a site where no wind farm has been operated prior to the implementation of the activity (Greenfield installation) as well as the capacity addition to an existing wind farm.

Participation in this programme will enable the wind farm developers to increase the economic viability of wind farm construction projects due to the revenue from selling CERs.

Starting date of the programme is 08/02/2013.

Length of the programme is 28 years.
