10 Significant Projects That Were Completed In Africa In 2014

9. Jasper Power Project, South Africa 

Another solar power plant was launched this year – Africa’s biggest. The 96 MW Jasper Power Project in the Northern Cape of South Africa is now operational, generating enough power to supply 80,000 households.

This enormous project, developed and financed by SolarReserve, Intikon Energy, and the Kensani Group, is yet another step for South Africa towards attaining a goal of 18 GW of clean energy capacity by the year 2030. The Jasper Power Project comes in particularly handy as it prevents power shortages, allowing for more stable production and thus attracting further investment – both local and international – strengthening South Africa’s already solid economic reputation.
