Solar PV in Zimbabwe
Green Rhino Energy is developing a 50MW solar photovoltaic power station in Marondera, 70km east of Harare, in a joint venture with a local developer.
Zimbabwe is a land-locked country in southern Africa with one of the best conditions for solar pv worldwide.
Zimbabwe imports 41% of its power and has an estimated deficit of 2GW in generating capacity. In order to accelerate economic development in the country, and to decrease reliance on energy imports, Zimbabwe is attracting investors into its energy infrastructure.
The solar pv station will provide electricity for 80,000 people and allow economic growth.
We have created a joint venture company with a local partner, De Green Rhino Energy, incorporated in Zimbabwe.
