The South African Cabinet has welcomed the commissioning of the final wind turbine, at 140 megawatts, at Nxuba Wind Farm in the Eastern Cape.

It is back to the drawing board for a giant new wind farm project on the West Coast, following an appeal decision by environment minister Barbara Creecy.

The government has approved in principle the huge Boulders wind farm project on the West Coast peninsula near Paternoster, St Helena Bay and Vredenburg.

The government is due to announce its decision on a massive new wind energy project on the West Coast within the next two weeks.
