  • GameChange Solar has been selected to supply its Genius Tracker™ solar trackers for four new solar projects totalling over 500MW in Southern Africa.
  • These projects are strategically positioned to enhance energy supply across the region, supporting the diversification of the energy mix to help ensure a stable electricity supply, including critical mining operations.

Three of the projects are in South Africa, including a Risk Mitigation Independent Power Producer Program (RMIPPP) project in the Northern Cape and two private sector projects to supply electricity for mining operations in the Northern Cape and Limpopo regions that will provide energy self-sufficiency and contribute to the country’s economic growth. The fourth project in Zimbabwe is phase 1 of the 185 MW Zimplats solar plant, a private-sector project dedicated to providing essential power for the Zimplats platinum mining operation that is expected to begin producing power by the end of May 2024.

These solar projects represent collaborative efforts between private entities, government agencies, and energy stakeholders. As Southern Africa continues to prioritize sustainable development, these investments underscore the critical role of reliable power supply in driving progress.

With GameChange Solar’s newly announced training and service center for its Genius Tracker products in South Africa, the awarded projects reaffirm GameChange Solar’s commitment to advancing renewable energy solutions and supporting Southern Africa’s sustainable development.
