The Touwsrivier plant, with a direct current (DC) capacity of 44 MW, was brought online in December 2014 and operates under a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with domestic utility Eskom. The complex was set up in response to South Africa's renewable energy independent power procurement programme.

Public Investment Corporation SOC Ltd (PIC), a wholly-owned by the South African government, in 2018 acquired the special purpose vehicle behind the project CPV Power Plant No 1 Equity SPV.
