Ⅰ. Introduction:

South Africa is quickly becoming a world leader in the use of photovoltaic technology in utility scale facilities to bolster power supply. This comes in response to the depletion of coal reserves, drive to be more environmentally friendly and the desire to have a guaranteed domestic long term energy resource. Solar power is rapidly becoming the go to solution under the Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Programs (REIPPPs) program, especially PV solutions due to the reduction on panel cost by approx. 80% since 2009.
