The procurement exercise is the third round of a tender scheme for PV projects ranging in size from 200 kW to 5 MW that the MEA launched in 2018. Around 44 MW were allocated so far, of which 14 MW in the first tender and 30 MW in the second round.

In mid-October, the MEA had also announced new FIT levels for PV projects with capacity comprised between 30 kW and 200 kW. This incentive will be granted exclusively to farmers, small and medium-sized enterprises and cooperative societies. The latter will be given a tariff of €139.20/MWh until March 31, 2021, while the other beneficiaries will be awarded a rate of €129.60/MWh.
