Saving money on electricity bills, reducing their carbon footprint and improving business returns are practical reasons clients choose Broadreach as a partner for their renewable energy needs.
Broadreach originated and advised Mergence Asset Management on the successful acquisition of a 70% stake in Momentous Solar One, a 6MWp solar PV plant outside Keetmanshoop, Namibia. In addition to working closely with the Mergence team, Broadreach also has an opportunity to acquire up to 14% in the project, which it is currently implementing.

During 2016 and 2017, Broadreach partnered with Rhino Energy and Clean Energy Africa to develop a 10.6MWp solar PV project situated in the Coega industrial development zone. After assisting in bringing the project to bankability, Broadreach successfully exited from its participation in the development early in 2018.
3 x 5MW Small REIPPP Projects
Broadreach was a 50% member of the consortium that was awarded preferred bidder status for three 5MW AC solar
PV projects (Steynsrus PV1 and 2, and Heuningspruit PV1) in Round 1 of the Small REIPPP program. After the REIPPP process stalled, Broadreach disposed of its shares in the projects to another consortium member. Broadreach retains a residual interest should the projects reach financial close.
