SA seeks $250m from BRICS bank to build power transmission lines

Lines will connect solar and wind power plants to a national grid.

CAPE TOWN – South Africa has asked the BRICS New Development Bank for $250 million of funding to connect new power plants to the national grid, Economic Development Minister Ebrahim Patel said on Wednesday.

If approved, the money would be used to build transmission lines connecting solar and wind power plants to a national grid, Patel said, as Africa’s most industrialised economy turns to green energy to diversify away from coal.

Patel should be fired from his ministry together with Red Rob – they are commies and incompetent to boot. These two twins of destruction are ruining the economy. If they are kept on then make then report to Treasury for starters
