The largest sub-Saharan solar energy park, excluding South Africa, for a total investment of US $ 76 million, will be born in Mozambique, one of the funders announced.

“The Mocuba Solar Center in the central Zambezia region is going to be the fifth largest solar farm and the first one to have a scale to supply the public grid,” said the Emerging Africa Infrastructure Fund (EAIF) .

The solar panel park will have the capacity “to supply 175,000 Mozambican households, or” 40% of Mozambique’s grid capacity “, equivalent to 4.8% nationally.
