What number of jobs will be created at each Independent Power Producer company which had its bid approved by his department?


Therefore, job numbers are reported in aggregate. Only the Renewable Energy Power Producer Procurement Programme (REIPPPP) has commenced with construction and operation of IPP projects. Under the REIPPP Programme a total number of 112 projects have been procured and it is envisaged that these projects will create 114 266 job years over the construction and 20 year operations period. A job year is equivalent to a full time employment opportunity for one person for one year.
