Minister of Energy To Visit Vryburg


THE Greening Technologies are part of the working for Energy Programme launched by the department in 2009, says Minister of Energy, Tina Joemat-Pettersson.

Joemat-Pettersson along with Naledi Local Municipality mayor, Neo Schalk will be handing over the Greening Technologies to Tygerkloof Combined School on Friday.

The department spokesperson, Thandiwe Maimane said Joemat-Pettersson is also expected to visit the smart grid intervention project in the Naledi Local Municipality.

“The objective of the Working for Energy Programme is to provide sustainable clean energy solutions to rural and low income urban communities with special emphasis on job creation, skills development and community enterprise development. The focus of the programme is on bioenergy derived from bio-waste, with more emphasis on agricultural waste.

“Minister will also use this opportunity to engage with the community of Vryburg on issues of service delivery with special focus on sustainable provision of energy for socio-economic development,” Maimane said.
