Batlharo are commonly known as Bahurutshe or Batsweneng in terms of their tribe. Like Batlhaping they are also Batswana and therefore actively traded during the Iron Age. They inhabit the traditional land that is within close proximity to amongst the world’s biggest manganese and iron-ore deposits. Indeed the Ba-ga Motlhware Solar farm will afford the tribe an opportunity trade in solar power whether through selling directly to the mines or DoE Independent Power Producer Programme.

Metsimatala Solar Farm

In history Batswana are regarded as the so-called Bantu speaking people who moved from North Africa downwards to the South. During the Iron Age they had an impeccable record of trading in gold and iron for survival. Batlhaping tribe in Metsimatala is situated in the area that is surrounded by massive Iron Ore, Lime and Diamond deposits and as a result huge mining activities.

The solar farm will provide this community with an opportunity to revive their Iron-Age trading skill through selling sustainable alternative energy. Metsimatala is an ideal area for energy generation due to its impressive Direct Normal Irradiation (DNI) and close proximity to mines, which undoubtly will be instrumental in limiting transmission losses.

In ancient times the spiritual beliefs and practices of the indigenous were encapsulated through rock art. The San people have for many years relied on natural means for their everyday way of life; and the respect for the environment and nature was of paramount.

The solar farm that will consist of concentrated solar and photovoltaic power will therefore bode well with the culture of the Xun & Khwe that revolve around nature and not distracting the environment. The solar farm will be a source of income for the indigenous people who are classified as amongst the highly marginalized communities in Southern Africa.
