Somalia: New Mogadishu solar park
Beco, Somalia’s main electricity supplier, has announced the commissioning of an 8MWp solar PV plant in Mogadishu. The commissioning of the company’s second solar PV park, which currently provides electricity four hours a day, has already helped achieve its primary aim of cutting the cost of electricity in the Somali capital by reducing the use of diesel generators. According to Beco’s chief engineer, Mohamud Farah, the commissioning of the Mogadishu solar PV plant has seen the cost of power fall from $0.49 to $0.36/kWh.
