The China-based company has said it will deliver around 458,000 of its photovoltaic modules to two projects, worth 75 MW and 35 MW, respectively, under the first round of the South African Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Programme (REIPPP).
BYD began supplying the modules last month. It added that it will also support project developers under South Africas second and third photovoltaic bidding rounds.
Tom Zhao, general manager of BYDs PV department, commented, "South Africa is heading down the road of becoming one of the leading countries in the solar energy realm, and were glad to have joined this journey."
