Mission in Cameroon: a 30 MWp photovoltaic project for Africa
Enerray, through the company EB Solaire, the result of a partnership with an important local company, is developing a “green field” photovoltaic project of approximately 30 MWp in Northern Cameroon, and will also be the Epc Contractor.
The first permitting steps for the 30 MWp solar plant have already been completed and during a visit to the site on the second week of October the authorities officially validated the new 70 hectare area identified by our technical office for the costruction of the photovoltaic system.
On 11 October, an official presentation of the pv project was organized with the involvement of the Governor of the Northern Region, the main local delegations, ministries, village leaders and other figures of the local community for a total of about 120 spectators. The event was shot by the national CRTV television. The presentation aroused great interest in the solar project, as it was stressed the need for electricity production to overcome its complete lack in certain areas and to remedy black-out problems during the dry season (from february to july).
In the various meetings with local authorities and consultants, it come up that the photovoltaic plant will have a strong social impact, being accompanied by a project to the direct benefit of local communities (such as the renovation of a public school or the supply of off-grid kits).
