The Northern Cape and Free State’s latest solar photovoltaic power plants began operating in February. The two plants were commissioned by Italian energy firm Enel, which hopes to continue its successful green push into South Africa. 

“Together with our local project partners, Enel Green Power SA’s renewable energy projects are already making a significant contribution to the country’s economy, and these two new solar facilities are expected to add further value to those efforts,” says Enel country manager for South Africa, William Price. 

The Adams plant in the Northern Cape and the Pulida in the Free State will generate 318GWh of energy each year and avoid emissions of nearly 300 000 tonnes of CO2.
