Socio-economic & enterprise development

Kangnas Wind Farm is committed to contributing to sustainable community growth through financial and non-financial community development initiatives. We will do this by giving back a percentage of total revenue earned to the community; through Socio-Economic Development (SED); Enterprise Development (ED); and through the Community Trust.

During the construction phase of the wind farm, the community will have access to more jobs and business opportunities than previously available in the area.

The residents of Springbok in the Northern Cape, situated approximately 50km from the wind farm site, will be the primary beneficiaries of community initiatives. This means that the community will continue to benefit through meaningful social investment for the 20 year life-span of the wind farm.

Socio-Economic Development

Kangnas Wind Farm’s socio-economic development projects will include academic support programmes and early childhood development initiatives that will help to alleviate illiteracy and increase participation in STEM subjects. Added to this, healthcare initiatives; community awareness campaigns; infrastructure development; women empowerment and youth will also be addressed.

Enterprise Development

Kangnas Wind Farm will assist and accelerate the sustainability of local enterprises owned by previously disadvantaged people, with BBB-EE Recognition Levels, women-owned vendors and QSE’s and EMEs.

Any local business or individual that would like apply for business support in order to improve the functionality of their business should contact the Economic Development Manager for more information.

Community Trust

The Kangnas Renewable Energy Community Trust will own 2.5% of the Wind Farm.
