Environment

Jeffreys Bay Wind Farm respects and protects the health of the natural environment through responsible environmental stewardship.

We apply leading environmental management practices that prevent, minimise and otherwise mitigate or remediate negative impacts our operations may have. We also strive to maximise any positive impacts where possible.

Wind is a clean, renewable energy source. There are many environmental benefits of wind energy, including:

  • Water saving – wind energy does not consume water during the energy generation process, it also helps preserve scarce water resources.
  • Reduced carbon emissions – one megawatt of wind energy equates to 2600 fewer tons of carbon emissions when compared to coal-fired energy generation.
  • Wind energy generation emits zero air or water pollution.
