Could wind power potentially be the future for a cheaper form of electricity in South Africa?
This answer is yes, according to Peter Venn, managing director for Windlab Africa.
“Its a really rich country, there is no need for South Africa to look at offshore investment.”
There is enough wind power in SA for government to procure as much wind energy as they want.
“Wind is the cheapest, quickest most reliable.”
Windlab has about 5 000 megawatts of wind farm projects across the globe. More than 2 000 megawatts are in SA alone.
