Meadows Energy, a 100% women-owned energy company, has been announced as G7 Renewable Energies’ partner for the Oya Hybrid Energy Project. The 128MW Oya Energy Hybrid Facility, which will eventually offer dispatchable renewable energy as part of the Risk Mitigation Independent Power Producer Procurement Programme (RMIPPPP), 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.
In partnership with G7 Renewable Energies, Meadows Energy will begin the construction of the Oya Energy Hybrid Project this year and complete it within 18 months to help ease South Africa’s power crisis.
“After years of G7 spearheading the wind energy industry in the country, the unique opportunity of the RMIPPPP – to provide reliable, low cost, on demand power to South Africa – they pioneered beyond conventional parameters and partnered with us to deliver the Oya Energy Hybrid Project” says Meadows Energy co-founder and MD Romaya Dorasamy. “Meadows Energy is committed to a future where South Africa will have adequate power for all, this can only be achieved through meaningful inclusion of local communities.”
The Meadows Energy team has been involved in the development of over 800MW utility scale renewable energy projects in Southern Africa. The team has also been involved in successfully completing the engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning and registration of over 6MW of Small-Scale Embedded Generation Solar PV projects in South Africa.
We are thrilled to announce a significant leap in sustainable energy development in South Africa with the successful financial close of the Oya Energy Hybrid Facility! 🚀
🌐 Project Highlights: Meadows Energy, ENGIE Africa, G7 Renewable Energies (Pty) Ltd and Perpetua Investment Managers (Pty) Ltd will jointly own and operate the Oya Energy Hybrid Facility after construction.
🗣️ Romaya Dorasamy, Managing Director at Meadows Energy, shares her excitement: "This milestone is remarkable for Meadows Energy and an enormous step towards a sustainable and innovative energy future. The Oya Project is a power generation initiative, a testament to our collective capability to create meaningful change."
🌱 Looking Ahead: We are eager to contribute to a cleaner, greener future for South Africa and beyond. Stay tuned for updates as we embark on this journey towards a more sustainable and resilient energy ecosystem!
