The SA Wind Energy Association has urged the Government to accelerate measures to increase the production of power from renewable energy sources.
With the country last week experiencing several bouts of loadshedding, the organization says ramping up the supply of electricity through renewable sources will see more power gradually become available to the national grid.
CEO of the SA Wind Energy Association, Niveshen Govender says land should be made available where wind farms can be erected.
Govender says loadshedding continues to severely impact businesses.

Last year, Eskom announced its intention to auction land in Mpumalanga to private investors for renewable energy development. This would cut a lot of red tape & get much-needed power onto the grid relatively quickly.https://t.co/zGGQMjy3fa
