SolarReserve, Kensani and Intikon Energy consortium is awarded further 88MW by South African DoE

The South African Department of Energy (DoE) has awarded a further 88MW of PV projects to the consortium consisting of SolarReserve, the Kensani Group and Intikon Energy. After the two 75MW projects Letsatsi and Lesedi Power Project, the Jasper solar energy project in Northern Cape is the third project the consortium has been awarded preferred bidder status. This brings the total of the projects to 238MW.  

The second round of awards was officially announced in May 2012 and, like the first round of biddings, preferred bidders receive the right to sell the generated power to South African utility Eskom under a 20-year PPA.

"Intikon Energy and its partners are committed to the objectives of the renewable energy procurement process in South Africa," Stephen Donnelly, managing director of Intikon Energy said. "Alongside the generation of clean sustainable energy, economic development and job creation are a fundamental objective of the Jasper Power Company Consortium and Intikon Energy. The success of the Jasper PV project will undoubtedly have a long-term positive social and economic impact on the communities it is associated with."
