Our team fully developed the Perdekraal East wind farm and are now constructing the plant. It is expected to reach commercial operation date in Q1, 2020.
The Perdekraal East wind farm was awarded preferred bidder status in 2015 through the Government's REIPPPP. On 05 June 2018, the project reached financial close and it is currently in construction.
Once operational, it will generate around 183,000 MWh of clean renewable energy per year and is expected to supply electricity to power up to 95,000 South African homes. It will elminate approximately 410,000 tonnes of carbon emissions each year compared to traditional fossil fuel power plants. Perdekraal East is owned by Mainstream's joint venture company, Lekela Power.
