Hardly the biggest in Africa.
Ghana is set to be home to Africa’s largest photovoltaic power plant after a UK-based firm announced plans for its construction.
The $400 million 155 MW Nzema project will be handled by the Blue Energy company, and is set to provide electricity to more than 100,000 homes upon completion in October 2015.
I think we are more infamous for spending Billions on new coal fired power generators I wonder how many homes could have been solar power with just one billion and in a fraction of the time saving the country millions that could have been reinvested in more solar. I still believe the right place for solar is on the roofs of the houses reducing infrastructure costs.
