This will bring its total share to 55% in the power plant located in the Western Cape province, thus making the project predominantly South African.

Among the other projects that could benefit from the banking institution's help is the preparation of an offer for an emergency 2 GW renewable energy program by August. Added to this is the company's participation in the 5th cycle of the program for the establishment of renewable energy plants by independent producers (REIPPPP) by 2021.

“In the past cycle, we had won 900 MW of projects without a financial partner. For the next operation, we will have a large financier who will allow us to double the number of projects previously won, ”says Gqi Raoleka, co-founder of Pele Energy.
