ENEL Connects New 144MW Wind Farm to S. A. National Grid

Italian power provider ENEL, has connected a wind farm in South Africa’s Eastern Cape to the country’s national grid.

The 144MW Nxuba wind farm was completed last November and will be supported by a 20-year power supply agreement with Eskom, the South African energy utility, as part of the South African government’s Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Procurement Programme (REIPPPP) tender.

ENEL operates in South Africa as ENEL Green Power RSA (EGP RSA) and has a total of eight operational projects in the country, with installed capacity of 650MW.

South Africa leads the continent in renewable energy capacity, with close to 4,000MW of Wind and Solar power connected to the national grid since 2014.
