This Terms of Reference (TOR) relates to the SAWEP 2 Component 3: Support for the development of small-scale wind sector. A need was identified, following meetings and discussions with key Eastern Cape stakeholders, Education, Roads & Public Works etc that were facilitated by the Eastern Cape Department of Economic Development, Environmental Affairs and Tourism (DEDEAT), to pilot small scale wind water pumping at selected schools in the Eastern Cape Province. Some of these schools have food gardens with some biogas digester systems that can also benefit from the small scale wind water pumping systems. It was then agreed in a follow up meeting with DEDEAT, Roads and Public Works, Chris Hani District Municipality (CHDM) and WESSA* for SAWEP to support (pilot) small scale wind water pumping at selected schools in the CHDM where WESSA is also implementing its Eco schools programme that can incorporate and support the small scale wind water pumping. The small scale wind water pumping systems (sswt) to be installed will be handed over to CHDM, Roads and Public Works on completion with a groundwater management plan. An Assessment of the Groundwater resource with borehole drilling at the selected schools are required.
* WESSA (Wildlife & Environment Society of South Africa) is implementing through the Chris Hani District Municipality (CHDM), its Eco schools programme at some schools in the CHDM.
