South Africa: Minister Edna Molewa Commends Launch of Kimberley Airport Solar Power Plant
The Minister of Environmental Affairs, Mrs Edna Molewa has commended the Department of Transport on the official opening of a yet another solar-powered airport in Kimberley.
Transport Minister Dipuo Peters on Friday, 13 May 2016, officially opened the Kimberley Airport Solar Plant, a project that is spearheaded by the Airports Company of South Africa (ACSA) at a special ceremony in the city.
The construction of the Kimberley Airport solar plant started in September last year and forms part of the ACSA's broader plan to install solar energy plants at all six regional airports over the next three to five years. This is to make the regional airports more self-sufficient.
