This membership will facilitate the trading of power from our merchant plants currently under development across the SAPP interconnected power system as well as using our strong balance sheet to trade power from other IPPs looking for access to the Southern African Power Pool markets. Solarcentury Africa says their planned renewable energy merchant fleet of 500MW by 2030 will make a significant contribution to eradicating the regional power deficit.
