Africa Green Tec has just installed a mini-network with a capacity of 45 kW in the Malian village of Fanidiama. The plant, which has a storage capacity of 60 kWh, will allow the inhabitants of this rural community to have access to electricity.
The production of the facility will be transferred to local residents at an affordable price, which will pay the operating and maintenance costs of the whole plant.
This is the 18th solar energy project that Africa Green Tec has installed in Mali and Niger. It has enabled more than 100,000 people to access electricity in rural areas.
The next plant is set to be installed in the rural community of Sira-Koro, in the Kayes region. Africa Green Tec’s medium-term goal is to electrify at least 50 villages in the country.
It finances its operations by raising approximately €10 million from German development finance institutions and private investors.
