Provincial Treasury says it is planning to get additional funds to build more solar powered desalination plants.

This week, a plant – which is the first of its kind in the country- was launched in Witsand, in the Garden Route District.

Nearly 9 million Rand was spent on the plant by the province – together with the French government.

Finance MEC Ivan Meyer says they need assistance from various stakeholders to roll out more such plants for drought-striken towns across the province.
