Phofu Solar Grid Connection

Grid Connection Infrastructure for the Authorised Phofu Solar Power Plant, near Vierfontein, Free State Province

Phofu Solar Power Plant (RF) (Pty) Ltd proposes the development of grid connection infrastructure for the authorised 150MWPhofu Solar Power Plant (DFFE Ref.: 14/12/16/3/3/1/2543).  The grid connection infrastructure includes a 132kV overhead power line and substation to enable the evacuation of the generated electricity from the 150MW Solar Power Plant to the national grid.  This is considered to be the grid connection solution for the authorised solar power plant.

The development is located approximately 6km east of the town of Vierfontein and falls within the Moqhaka Local Municipality and the greater Fezile Dabi District Municipality.  The three alternate routes under consideration.

The entire extent of the development is located within the Central Corridor of the Strategic Transmission Corridors and the Klerksdorp Renewable Energy Development Zone.
