New solar power plant in 2021 in Niger

A new 20 MW solar power plant should be operational from 2021 near Niamey, Niger’s capital. A windfall for this country which experiences persistent breakdowns in electricity supply and where electrification level is only 12% today according to the Nigelec company. The plant will be financed by the Agence Française de Développement and the European Union for a total amount of 28,5 million euros. The estimated job site start date is still awaited.
