The Iron & Precious stone
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.
