293 photovoltaic panels and 93 lampposts, for a production capacity of 73 KW of electrical energy per day. So summarizes the mini solar power plant, with a total cost of 454 million CFA francs, that the Chinese firm Huawei Technologies has just offered to the locality of Mvomeka’a (photo), the birthplace of the head of state. Cameroonian located in the South region.
The infrastructure was inaugurated on August 27, 2015 by the Minister of Energy and Water, Basile Atangana Kouna. “This project has shown the feasibility and the great potential of solar energy to improve electricity in rural areas,” said Huawei Cameroon general manager Ni Zheng, whose firm has already shown great interest in carrying out the solar electrification project of 166 localities in the country, a project being finalized within the government.
In total, in the medium term, 1,000 Cameroonian localities will benefit from this vast rural electrification program, Minister Atangana Kouna recalled on August 27 in Mvomeka’a. The country will thus be able to diversify its energy mix, in which solar, wind and biomass currently represent barely 1% of global production.
