Enough solar energy falls on the earth’s surface every 70 minutes as humankind can use each year, and delivers reliable power without any fuel or significant storage costs. With an average of more than 2,500 hours of sunshine every year, South Africa’s solar radiation output is twice that of Europe – making it one of the highest in the world, and the perfect climate for readily accessible solar generation. The recently approved Integrated Resource Plan for the South African energy system sees renewable such as solar PV and CSP making a critical contribution to the overall generation mix for the country.
