The $40 million projects will be the country’s first large scale solar-plus-storage project.
The Senegalese government is aiming to increase access to solar power in rural areas by reducing VAT on PV panels, inverters, solar thermal collectors and other products in an effort to achieve universal electricity access in the country by 2025.
The French energy giant will now build a solar PV power plant in Tauba, central Senegal, which will sell power at €0.0380 per kWh, while a second plant selling electricity at €0.0398 per kWh will be constructed in Kahone.
The French developer was selected by Senegal’s power utility Senelec to install 10 solar power plants across four different regions of the African country.
