Renewable energy company SunEdison has won five solar projects in South Africa.
They will be located in Northern Cape and North West Provinces and are expected to have a total capacity of 371MW – enough electricity to power 200,000 homes.
South African national utility Eskom will buy the solar energy in as part of a 20-year power purchase agreement.
The nation’s energy department awarded the contracts through its Renewable Energy IPP Procurement (REIIPPP) programme.
Pashupathy Gopalan, SunEdison Asia Pacific President said: “The five projects awarded will offer local enterprise development, skills development and procurement programmes.”
The company was previously awarded a 86MW solar project.
