The solar energy project will support the energy sector in the country through building a 6 MW solar power plant in the city of Freetown. It will provide electricity to many rural villages through private sector partnership, while enhancing the stability of energy grid. Additionally, the private-public joint venture will create several job opportunities through the construction, operation, and maintenance works.
The project involves the supply and installation of silicon photovoltaic panels, operation of the power station and its connection to the national grid. It also involves civil, electrical and mechanical works for the operation and maintenance of the plant.
