Progress Update August 2016

Here at Just energy realise that we have been rather quiet for the twelve months since we received the good news that the Just Energy supported wind project in the Eastern Cape had been selected to proceed as part of the Department of Energy’s REIPPP Programme.

Far from being quiet in reality, much has been happening behind the scenes to move the project forwards towards its targeted financial close and thereafter to construction and operations.

We don’t yet have the final date for financial close, but we are very optimistic that it will happen before the end of this year, 2016, and that a major milestone will be achieved at that point.

More news will follow here once we have confirmation of dates!

We are also in the process of developing a more detailed report that explores the process that Just Energy has followed, its aims and aspirations around community ownership, the benefits of the approach and areas where it could be improved for greater community benefit in future. We also hope to have that document available here in the next few weeks.

Decision Day is Here

Today is a very exciting day for Just Energy and our community partners as we are eagerly anticipating the announcement of the 1st round of renewable energy projects that have been selected by the South African Department of Energy to be built under their Independent Power Producers programme.

The Announcement is scheduled for 10 a.m. today (Dec 7th), SA time in Durban.

Fingers crossed that our River Bank project will be one of the successful ones as it has huge potential for channeling significant revenues into the local community in the Eastern Cape.

We’ll be providing updates here as we get them!
