Green electricity is generated with technology that minimises the impact on the environment and which uses primary energy sources (fuel) that are renewable. GreenX electricity is generated from biomass wastes in the sugar, wood and paper industries; from micro-hydro plants; with further plans for wind and solar energy currently under investigation.

While it has a vast potential to produce renewable electricity, South Africa produces very little. Eskom’s surplus coal fired and nuclear generation capacity will shortly be fully utilised as older plant is retired and demand continues to grow. This creates an ideal opportunity to establish a market for green power and encourage new power generation to be based on renewable energy sources.
