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 between Oyster Bay and St Francis Bay, Kouga Wind Farm (80MW) has delivered clean energy to the grid since 2015; in so doing, it is contributing to the country’s decarbonisation.
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.
Providing support to local communities is the hub around which Kouga Wind Farm’s operations turn. Our socio-economic development projects aim to contribute meaningfully to the adjacent Sea Vista and Umzamowethu communities.
Kouga Wind Farm alone mitigates over 270 000 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent in greenhouse gas emissions each year and helps to create a brighter, cleaner future for the surrounding communities.
Kouga Wind Farm comprises 32 turbines each capable of generating up to 2.5MW of power. Collectively, these turbines generate approximately 270 million kilowatt-hours (270GWh) of electrical energy per year.
These are the project partners who came together and combined their energies to realise the vision of Kouga Wind Farm
