Kakamas Hydro Electric Power company was established to develop, own, construct, finance and manage a hydro-electric project near Kakamas in the Northern Cape. The Kakamas hydro-electric project has an installed capacity of 12 MW. A 1,400m long by 8m wide canal conveys water from the inlet to the turbine over a 15m drop. This will generate enough electricity to power up to 5,000 homes.
