Zeerust Solar is one of South Africa’s newest solar projects, helping to put the North West Province firmly on the country’s clean power map.
With over 250 000 solar modules harnessing the intense power of the sun, this 75MW solar project supplies South Africa with 180 000 MWh/year of much-needed green energy and benefits the local communities of the Ramotshere Moiloa Local area, through its many economic development programmes.
75MW Zeerust Solar is part of Round 4 of the South African Government’s Renewable Energy Independent Power Producers Procurement Programme (REIPPPP) and one of four projects approved for the North West Province.
The solar plant, which connects to the close-by Kameeldoorn switching station, comprises 250 080 solar modules and stands on 179 hectares of agricultural land, close to the town of Zeerust. The solar field is positioned on two farms, namely, Portion 15 of Farm Kameeldoorn 271-JP (Keulder) and Portion 14 of Farm Kruisrivier 270-JP (Ikageng Trust) within the Ramotshere Moiloa Local Municipality.Fact sheet
