Local communities will benefit from the Renewable Energy IPP Procurement programme. By May 2015, the renewable energy independent power producer procurement (REIPPP) programme had approved 79 wind, solar and hydro projects and asked each of them to contribute towards local community development through socio- economic and enterprise development, local ownership and local job creation. These requirements have to be fulfilled within speci radius of the project and oblige
renewable energy companies to engage with the developmental opportunities and needs of communities around their project sites. Jasper Power is mandated to spend annually 1.5% of its revenue on Socio-Economic Development initiatives and 0.6% of its revenue on Enterprise Development initiatives. Through these initiatives Jasper Power has been actively involved in the communities of Postmasburg.
