Enel breaks ground on 82MW South Africa PV plant

Pulida is capable of generating more than 150GWh annually once fully operational, enough to power around 48,000 homes. Image: Mister-E1 Italy-based renewable energy developer Enel Green Power (EGP) has begun construction of the 82.5MW Pulida solar power plant in Free State Province, South Africa. The facility is capable of generating more than 150GWh annually once fully operational, enough to power around 48,000 homes. The energy generated by Pulida will be sold to South African utility Eskom through the 20-year power supply agreement that EGP was awarded in October 2013 under the third round of South Africa's Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Procurement Programme (REIPPPP). EGP has also been awarded the right to build the Aurora (82.5 MW), Paleisheweul (82.5 MW) and Tom Burke (66 MW) solar power projects, in the same tender.
