PV South Africa Market Update and Plants Map unveiled today

PV Insider's South African market update and projects map provides an exclusive breakdown of Rounds I and II of South Africa's Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Programme (REIPPP), plus the size and location of 27 PV projects under development in this region.

Researchers at PV Insider have completed work on the PV South Africa Market Update and Projects Map 2013, which provides an exclusive breakdown of the progress made in Rounds I and II of the REIPPP. Furthermore, the industry guide examines the impact that delays to Round III of the REIPPP have had on the solar-PV market in South Africa.


The projects map details the size and location of 27 PV plants that successfully won bids in Rounds I and II of the REIPPP and it also provides global horizontal irradiance data for South Africa and the projects are overlaid to show their location on the GHI map.

Global horizontal irradiation in South Africa varies between 1600 to 2300 kWh/m2, and the PV Plants Map South Africa includes GHI data collected from 1994-2012. This has been made available to the industry to enable a better understanding of South Africa's highly esteemed solar resources, and to give developers the tools they need to select the best location to develop plants in this region

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
