Angola focuses on individual solar energy production systems

Angola plans to install 30,000 individual solar power generation systems and build a solar plant with a capacity of 600 megawatts, the minister of energy and water said on Tuesday in Luanda.

João Baptista Borges, who was speaking at a lecture on the financing of renewable energy projects, with the participation of public and private companies, as well as university students, said the projects are included in the Electric Sector Development and the Energy Security Agency’s plans.

The minister said that solar energy is increasingly cost-effective and is currently a solution for the country’s electrification, especially in individual systems that can be installed in villages, according to the Jornal de Angola newspaper.
