De Aar solar project starts supplying power into grid

The 50 MW De Aar solar power project, which is majority owned by power company Globeleq, on December 3 started supplying power into Eskom’s power grid in the De Aar municipality.

This meant that, in future, should the municipality supply be off owing to scheduled maintenance, or a fault on the line, the project would be able to supply the entire De Aar town and surrounding areas with electricity.

“Although our planned commercial operation date is set for April, the project will, in fact, be able to produce enough power within the next couple of weeks to power the entire local town and neighbouring areas,” said De Aar solar power project manager Savva Antoniadis. Read on Engineering News >
