Similarly to the Aries project, the Konkoonsies 10MW Solar Energy Facility was originated by Aurora and developed as a greenfield site in partnership with BioTherm Energy ahead of Round 1 of South Africa’s Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Procurement Program (REIPPPP).

Key activities by Aurora Power Solutions:

  • Complete permitting and licensing of project
