MWVS wind farm has been under development since 2006. It was selected preferred bidder in terms of the Department of Energy’s Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Procurement Programme . Construction of the R550 million project started in November 2012 and is the first commercial wind farm operating under REIPPPP.
