Pretoria - South Africa committed to buy 1,043 megawatts of renewable energy from independent developers in the second stage of a programme to boost power supplies and reduce its reliance on coal.

The government and state-owned power utility Eskom signed agreements with power producers on Thursday for 19 projects worth 28 billion rand ($3.1 billion).

This comes on top of the 28 projects already signed off in the first stage of the clean energy drive, whose winners are investing 47 billion rand to build 1,415 MW of clean power.
