Goosen Boerdery

Overview

The Goosen Family started farming on Jagerskraal, Prince Alfred’s Hamlet during 1861 and is one of the oldest farming families in the area. Farming on both sides of the Skurweberg Mountain range has the benefit of two climate zones and the opportunity to grow a wider range of varieties from early to late season.
New Southern Energy designed a 161,28 kWp PV Solar system for Goosen Boerdery that includes 384 solar modules, 4 grid-tied string inverters, 192 optimisers and one tie-in point to the site’s low voltage network, as well as a control and monitoring system. A 300 kVA Diesel generator was installed to supply the facility with power during loadshedding.
