Finweek;10/16/2008 Supplement, p22
The article focuses on the launch of the Darling Wind Power by Minerals & Energy Minister Buyelwa Sonjica in South Africa. According to the report from I-Net Bridge, the 75 million rand national demonstration project is the first green energy initiative in the country, to produce electricity from wind power on commercial bases. Hermann Oelsner, CE of Darling Wind Power says that the country has the potential to generate electricity from wind more that its current power consumption.
