The addition of a minimum of 160MW of power to the region will be required by 2025.  We would propose that the target be set at the sustainable, secure access to an additional 200MW to effectively deal with outages, new technologies and maintenance issues.  We have no need to wait for ESKOM as we have efficient solar, wind and hydro technologies for power generation within our grasp.  Further research and development into alternative energy must be encouraged at all levels, and capital from our proposed Corridor Bond could certainly be harnessed to this end.
