Oya Energy

Oya Energy Hybrid dispatchable facility consists of solar, wind and storage. Oya Energy (Pty) Ltd will own and operate the 128 MW plant near the town of Matjiesfontein, straddling the Western and Northern Cape Provinces. The Oya Energy Hybrid Facility falls within the Komsberg Renewable Energy Development Zone (REDZ), as Gazetted on 16 February 2018 (GN 114)

The 128MW Oya Energy Hybrid Facility will offer dispatchable renewable energy for the RMIPPPP programme. The Project will utilise co-located wind turbines, solar PV arrays, Lithium-Ion batteries and a hybrid controller that orchestrates all three technologies to provide dispatchable power to the grid as and when needed.

Oya will be one of the largest hybrid energy projects in Africa considering the technology mix, size, and price.

Oya is in full support of the goals detailed in the Economic Development guidelines as presented in the RMIPPPP Request for Proposal (“RfP”).

Oya is committed to a future where South Africa will have adequate power for all, and this can only be achieved in conjunction with local communities who must benefit from the ‘just energy transition’ in the long term. Oya embraces all aspects of the Risk Mitigation Independent Power Producer Procurement Programme (“RMIPPPP”), acknowledging that the programme aims to act as a key driver for continued economic development (“ED”) in communities.
