The Kgatleng District Council (KDC) plans to build a 15 MW waste energy power station at the Pilane landfill at a cost of just over a billion Pula.

In an interview with BusinessWeek, Kgatleng Councillor Mpho Moruakgomo said KDC is currently in negotiations with the Botswana Power Corporation to secure an independent power producing licence as well as a power purchase agreement.

“We are currently in negotiations to get the greenlight to generate 15MW of power using 400 tonnes of waste from the Kgatleng district and surrounding areas,”  said Moruakgomo who added that they already have sponsors on board.
