Namibia seeks developers for 25 megawatt solar PV plant

Botswana plans to add more 600 megawatts (MW) of solar and coal-fired power in the next six years as the country looks to wean itself off imports while also eyeing power exports, the minerals and energy minister said on Monday.

Namibia is targeting 70% of its installed electricity capacity to come from renewable sources by 2030.

Namibia is seeking developers to build a 25 megawatt solar-power facility to source energy for its capital, Windhoek, and help counter an electricity shortage.

The public-private partnership will include the construction, financing and operation of the facility, the city said in a notice published in local newspapers. It’s estimated to cost 420 million Namibian dollars ($29 million).
