The Angola Southern Provinces Project

Bringing clean energy to Angola’s Southern Provinces.

Angola wants to increase the national electrification rate to 60% by 2025 and decarbonize its electric sector. We’re helping Angola achieve this goal by installing a variety of solar installations throughout Angola’s Southern Provinces.

Improving quality of life far from the national grid.

Sun Africa is installing 200+ solar cabin systems and 60,000+ solar home systems in the southern provinces of Cunene, Huila, Namibe, and Cuando Cubango. These projects will connect an additional ​​827,754 Angolans to electricity.

Additionally, we’re installing minigrids that will provide 220 Megawatts of solar energy, much-needed water purification systems, and 286 megawatt hours of battery storage across 64 communities.

Strengthening the Angolan power sector.

We’re developing utility-scale solar projects in two Southern provinces, Catete and Lauca. Six municipal distribution networks will be constructed, electrifying an additional 45,000 homes. Strengthening the Angolan power sector, 600 MW of utility-scale solar PV generation will be grid connected.

Delivering a turnkey package to Angola.

All told, the Angola Southern Provinces Project will electrify 350,000 households, provide clean water to 1.1 million Angolans, and ultimately improve the lives of over 2.1 million Angolan citizens. Sun Africa’s role includes delivering state-of-the-art technology, financing, and training for the people of Angola.

The development in Catete is 1 of 2 public utility-scale photovoltaic solar plants coming to Angola’s Southern Provinces that will be interconnected to the national electricity grid.
In addition to 2 utility-scale solar projects, Sun Africa is installing 65 new solar minigrids, 205 solar power cabin systems and over 60,000 solar home systems in Angola’s Southern Provinces.
Energy distribution in Angola’s Southern Provinces will be headquartered in 5 counties: Menongue, Lubango, Ondjiva, Cahama, Bibala.
A rendering of the utility-scale solar plant in development in Lauca, which will have an installed capacity of 400MWp (320MWac).
The development in Lauca is 1 of 2 public utility-scale photovoltaic solar plants coming to Angola’s Southern Provinces that will be interconnected to the national electricity grid.
The development in Lauca will be located next to Laúca Dam.
Once the Angola Southern Provinces Project is complete, 2.1 million Angolans will benefit from access to and/or improved reliability of electricity.
