The Kouga Wind Farm at Oyster Bay was officially opened by Eastern Cape MEC for Economic Development, Environmental Affairs and Tourism, Sakhumzi Somyo, in September.

Located a short distance from the already functioning Jeffreys Bay Wind Farm, the new R2-billion facility consists of 32 turbines with a combined energy generating capacity of 300 GWh per annum, enough to power some 50 000 homes with clean green energy.

It is also the 7th of 17 renewable energy sites located in the Eastern Cape to go live since the drafting of government’s National Renewable Energy Procurement Programme in 2008, and has resulted in the creation of 1 000 jobs with 350 being local residents.

"The Kouga Wind Farm is the culmination of many years of hard work and all those involved must be congratulated. As the department, we are very excited to see these farms being erected, with Kouga being a prime example," MEC Somyo said.

Kouga Executive Mayor Daphne Kettledas said that the completion of the wind farm had moved Kouga one step closer in consolidating its position as the renewable energy hub of South Africa.

"The wind farm is more than an area with massive turbines pumping energy back into the national grid. It is an integral part of the community where it is located. Through the wind farm, the people of Umzamowethu now have a clinic waiting facility, as well as extra classrooms and a computer lab at the local school.

"We look forward to our communities going from strength and strength and welcome the winds of change to Kouga," she said.
