Netcare & Medicross Rooftop PV Overview

SolarReserve’s alternative clean energy solutions helped Netcare meet the goals of their environmental sustainability strategy to reduce their carbon footprint and ensure the security of the supply of electricity required by their high-acuity operations, which is critical in delivering the best patient experience. Actively managing their dependency on municipal power during standard tariff periods by securing a portion of their power supply from a clean, renewable power source that they own results in direct and indirect cost savings, reduced environmental impact and better management of risk related to future municipal tariff uncertainty.

SOLARRESERVE UTILITY-SCALE SOLAR SOLUTIONS

Picture of SolarReserve’s US project shown is representative of the future Redstone project

REDSTONE Postmasburg, Northern Cape Province PPA SIGNED 2018 The first of its kind in Africa, the Redstone Solar Thermal Power Project features SolarReserve’s world-leading molten salt energy storage technology in a tower configuration with the capability to support South Africa’s demand for energy when it’s needed most – day and night. The 100 MW project with 12 hours of full-load energy storage will be able to reliably deliver a stable electricity supply to more than 200,000 South African homes during peak demand periods, even well after the sun has set. Fuelled completely by the sun, with no back up fossil fuel required, the project also features dry cooling of the power generation cycle as an important element to minimise water use. The project was developed in response to the South Africa Department of Energy’s Round 3 call for CSP projects for the Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Procurement Programme (REIPPPP). With the lowest delivered electricity price of any CSP project in the country to date, the Redstone project will generate more than 480,000 megawatt-hours per year. The Redstone project will be located adjacent to the 75 MW Lesedi and 96 MW Jasper photovoltaic (PV) solar power projects successfully developed by SolarReserve and its investment partners. Together, 5

Storage allows the facility to produce more than twice as much net annual output (megawatt hours) than traditional solar without storage

the three projects comprise a combined CSP and PV solar park with a total of 271 MW of generating capacity.

Redstone Project Overview

• Location: Postmasburg, Northern Cape Province • Technology: SolarReserve’s proprietary CSP tower

technology with Molten Salt Thermal Energy Storage • Size: 100 megawatt (MW) facility output • Storage: 12 hours of full load energy storage, providing the ability to generate electricity on-demand as required, day and night • Electricity Production: 480,000 MW-hours annually– twice the generation of an equivalent sized photovoltaic (PV) project Investment Partners: SolarReserve and International • Company for Water and Power Projects (ACWA Power) • Homes Powered: More than 200,000 homes • Dry Cooling: Significantly reduces the use of water


LETSATSI Bloemfontein, Free State Province OPERATING

JASPER AND LESEDI Postmasburg, Northern Cape OPERATING The Lesedi and Letsatsi Solar PV Projects, which came online in May 2014, are two of the largest project finance transactions ever completed in South Africa and among the largest renewable energy projects in Africa. The projects, totalling 150 MW of installed capacity, are capable of powering more than 130,000 South African homes with clean energy. As part of the South African Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Procurement Program (REIPPPP), the projects set aside a percentage of total project revenues for Enterprise Development and Socio-Economic Development for the benefit of the local communities. The Jasper Solar Power Project came online in October 2014 and is fully operational, playing a part in helping South Africa meet its renewable energy targets, in addition to stimulating long term economic development and creating new jobs. The Jasper project generated about 1 million man-hours during construction, peaking at over 800 on-site construction jobs. With over 325,000 PV modules, the Jasper project is delivering in excess of 180,000 megawatt-hours of renewable electricity annually for South Africa residents – enough to power up to 80,000 households.
