Garden Route set to get R1.2-billion solar farm to fight load-shedding

A R1.2-billion solar farm project has been approved by the National Treasury, Kannaland municipal manager Reynold Stevens has confirmed.

Stevens announced the project during an oversight visit to the Garden Route district municipality on Wednesday, adding that it would be a public-private partnership between Kannaland Municipality and InnovSure to provide an alternative source of green energy to the municipality.

”This is a fantastic initiative as this investment will create job opportunities and the company will further invest R42 million per annum in the Kannaland Municipality for critical infrastructure projects and further assist the Municipality with smart technology,” said DA MPP Deidre Baartman.

This is good for when the Cape secedes from Africa, they'll have their own power generation capability.
It's going to be entirely impossible for the Cape to secede from Africa. :ROFL:

Amazing news. Hope this gains more traction - we need more of this sort of initiative.

IF everything goes to plan with little to no corruption this sounds like a good idea.
Also this needs to happen ASAP since loadshedding have overstayed it's welcome!

Might be approved by National Treasury ... but not by Gwede ... I place my money on this dying before it even gets off the ground.
