overview

This ambitious project in Burundi completed the construction of a 8.67MWp solar PV power plant that increases the country’s baseload generation capacity by as much as 15%. Located in Mubuga, in the Gitega Province, the commissioning of the plant is the first grid-connected solar project developed by an independent power producer (IPP) in Burundi.

The plant supplies the electricity needs of at least 87,600 people and businesses, and provided 300 part-time jobs during construction and up to 50 full-time jobs during the operational phase.

The developers also plan to construct a scalable mini-grid scheme alongside the project for the local community in Mubuga village as part of a corporate social responsibility initiative and will provide yearly support to the community to improve economic growth and living standards.
