The latest round of renewable energy independent power producer procurement (REIPPP) programme boasts an impressive reduction in the price of power and the largest number of bids submitted to date. A total of 93 power projects were submitted, representing a combined capacity of 6,023MW. Seventeen have been selected so far, with total capacity of 1,473MW and an estimated value of R44bn ($4.3bn). The 29 October announcement said further projects may be selected by 20 November due to the high number of “very competitive” bids. Eighteen bidders were sent letters of non-appointment due to non-compliance with qualification criteria.
