SA’s first wind farm opens in Western Cape

The first wind farm in South Africa, which produces electricity from wind power, was switched on by Minerals and Energy Minister Buyelwa Sonjica in Darling in the Western Cape on Friday, the Central Energy Fund said. The R75-million project is the first ”green energy” initiative in the country to produce electricity from wind power on a commercial basis.
