Burkina Faso: EOIs sought for solar plants
Societe Nationale d’Electricité du Burkina (Sonabel) seeks expressions of interest from consultants by 8 November to oversee the construction of four solar PV plants and related infrastructure. The consultancy is funded by the French Development Agency as part of its contribution to the Yeleen rural electrification project backed by the Green Climate Fund and the African Development Bank. Yeleen, which means “light” in the Bambara language, aims to provide power to 150,000 households, comprising 50,000 connections to mini-grids and 100,000 stand-alone solar kits.
