Shareholders

Shares are the units into which the ownership interest in a profit company is divided. The share capital of a company is made up of the funds contributed by shareholders to the company in exchange for their shares in the company.  Here are Jasper Power Project’s International and South African shareholders profiles.

IPPPP

The Independent Power Producers Procurement Programme (IPPPP) was established at the end of 2010 as one of the South African government’s urgent interventions to enhance South Africa’s power generation capacity.

The Department of Energy (DoE), National Treasury (NT) and the Development Bank of Southern Africa (DBSA) established the IPPPP Office for the specific purpose of delivering on the IPP procurement programme objectives. 

However, energy policy and supply is not only about technology, but has a substantial influence also on economic growth and socio-economic development. As such, the IPPPP has been designed to go beyond the procurement of energy to also contribute to broader national developmental objectives such as job creation, social upliftment and increasing opportunities for economic ownership.

The introduction of private sector generation offers multiple benefits. It is contributing greatly to the diversification of both the supply of energy and nature of its production, assisting in the introduction of new skills and in new investment into the industry, and enabling the benchmarking of performance and pricing.

Equity Investment for the 96MW (DC) Jasper project has been provided by a strong group of International and South African shareholders who jointly have experience in all aspects of development, funding, construction and operations of solar photovoltaic projects are as follows:

One of the requirements contained in the Request for Proposal (RFP) for satisfaction by the Project Company is that it must comply with the Economic Development Obligations which has, as one of its requirements, the obligation that local communities must also benefit from the IPP Procurement Programme.

Therefore, in line with project’s economic development obligations, the project has ensured participation by local communities, through the P.E.A.C.E Humansrus Trust. The Trust will thus hold shares and the project company will make distributions to the Trust for the benefit of the local communities.

The main objectives of the Trust will be to ensure that any Dividends received will be utilized to fund social upliftment projects that will empower the communities in and around the Jasper Power project site.
