Thabong means a place of happiness in Southern Sotho; the farm will be situated in Uitkyk just outside Welkom in the Free state. Renewable energy is a source that is helping alleviate the transformation of electrical power generation from coal to a more natural source, which is the sun.

The farm is named after Thabong, the township that was established in the years of oppression and was meant for black people and to accommodate people who worked in the richest mines of goldfields. The township is filled with diversity of people who mainly came from various counties like Lesotho, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, etc. to work in mines of Goldfields.

Thabong solar farm will be operating in the new era where it is not about segregation and oppression but economic emancipation of the oppressed.
