Technology

Kouga Wind Farm comprises 32 turbines each capable of generating up to 2.5MW of power. Collectively, these turbines generate approximately 300 million kilowatt-hours (300GWh) of electrical energy per year.

About Kouga Wind Farm

Kouga Wind Farm is a renewable energy project which makes the most of the fresh onshore breezes that sweep the Eastern Cape coastline of South Africa.

Situated approximately 70km southwest of Port Elizabeth – between Oyster Bay and St Francis Bay – the wind farm delivers 80 megawatts of grid-connected capacity in the quest to power the country’s low-carbon future.

According to the Department of Energy’s national Integrated Resource Plan, the renewable energy sector is targeted to provide 42% of SA’s energy requirements by 2030, with wind farms playing an increasingly productive role.
