It's been a long time in the works, but South Africa's renewable energy drive is on much firmer ground with the award of contracts to develop 19 new renewable energy projects. Valued at more than $3 billion, the projects will result in the construction of manufacturing facilities and the creation of more than 7,000 green jobs. That's in addition to all the CO2, greenhouse gases, pollution and environmental degradation that will be avoided.
