South Africa's Eskom to sign 27 renewable energy deals this week
Energy minister Jeff Radebe said Eskom will sign agreements with 27 renewable energy projects this coming week, according to the City Press.
The renewable energy projects will add 2,305MW of electricity capacity once they enter commercial operation in 2020.
“These projects will provide 61,600 full-time jobs, of which 95% will be for South Africans, mostly during plant construction,” said Radebe. “Together, this will achieve a further R103 billion (US$8,7 billion) of investment in the economy with substantial foreign direct investment,” he said.
