Mozambique launches the construction of second solar power plant
On 23 October 2020 President Filipe Nyusi, and the French Ambassador, David Izzo, officially launch the construction works of Mozambique’s second solar power plant.
Located in Metoro, in the north of the country, the PV power plant is supported by PROPARCO and AFD and is set to improve access to green electricity in a country marked by a low electrification rate.
In October 2019, AFD Group allocated a $40 million loan to finance the construction of the solar power plant. This energy infrastructure has a capacity of 41MWp and will inject over 60GWh of additional green electricity into the grid every year, providing 135,000 Mozambicans with reliable and renewable electricity.
