The Angola Solar Project
Brightening Angola’s future.
When Angola wanted to strengthen their national electricity system, diversify their energy matrix, and reduce their dependence on fossil fuels, they turned to Sun Africa. The result is the Angola Solar Project, the largest renewable energy project in Sub-Saharan Africa. It creates 370 MWs of renewable energy and prevents the emission of 935,953 tons of carbon (CO) per year. Sun Africa initiated this project, developed it, and arranged financing.
Achieving economic and environmental goals.
This project is the centerpiece of Angola’s efforts to replace thermal power stations, displace expensive diesel usage from generators, and reduce pollution. Diversifying Angola’s energy matrix, this project utilizes cutting-edge clean energy technology that will pay dividends for decades to come.
Lifting up rural communities.
While Sub-Saharan Africa as a whole is facing the lowest level of access to electricity worldwide, rural areas in particular are facing the most challenges. Between 60-70 percent of business owners in the region say that a lack of power is the number one factor restricting their growth.
The Angola Solar Project creates new opportunities for Angolan communities that will no longer be forced to rely on and pay for gasoline or diesel generators. Each one of the five projects that comprises the Angola Solar Project will supply the needs of 500,000 Angolan homes, mainly in rural areas.
