We have submitted the feasibility and environmental studies for our PV Mini-grid pilot project in Nioki, Mai-Ndombe, in the Democratic Republic of Congo
The Nioki Solar Mini-grid Project consists of the development, construction and operation of a PV generation facility and the associated grid network infrastructure to supply power to the households and businesses of the city of Nioki located within the province of Mai-Ndombe in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The Project, upon completion, is expected to provide electricity access to at least half the households of the city of Nioki.
The first phase of the Project includes the development, construction, and operation of a 2 MW PV plant together with a 2.5 to 3 MWh battery storage and the associated grid infrastructure to connect up to 7,000 households and businesses in the city of Nioki. A further capacity addition of approximately 3 MW is planned in the future after successful implementation of the first phase. The power plant in the first phase is expected to generate ca. 2,966,307 kWh in the first year of its operation. The electricity produced will be sold to the consumers (households and commercial businesses) via prepaid card payment systems and mobile money platforms. The mini-grid will be in operation for at least 30 years.
Green Enesys’ local subsidiary ELECTRILAC SAS is established to carry out the development and implementation of the Minigrid project in Nioki.
