BioTherm was elected by the Department of Energy in November 2011 as preferred bidder on three renewable energy projects. Namely, Aries and Konkoonsies solar projects which are located near Kenhardt and Pofadder respectively as well as the Dassiesklip wind project located near Caledon in the Western Cape. All three projects are currently under construction and with all components having been delivered to site for each project, they are on schedule to complete construction as planned. The solar projects commercial operation dates are both scheduled for December of 2013 while the wind for January of 2014. Once complete, the DassiesKlip wind energy facility will be the first wind facility in South Africa to come online from the round one of the REIPPP supplying renewable energy to the national grid.
