Bokamoso Solar located in the North West Province has commenced commercial operations, having achieved full compliance on 12 September 2020.

Bokamoso Solar noted in a press statement that this power plant and several others currently under construction, have put the North West on the map as a player in the renewable energy sector, to not only deliver additional power to the country’s national grid, but also benefit the rural communities through impactful economic development programmes.

The project is 100% South African owned, “a significant differentiate and proof that the green power sector is an attractive option for local investors,” reads part of the statement.

The 67.9MW Bokamoso Solar is currently the largest solar PV power project in the province, with 236,580 solar panels harnessing the intense North West sun. The solar plant has begun generating 177,660MWh of much-needed green electricity each year, which is enough to satisfy the needs of around 30,000 average South African households.
