In the past five years, demand for electricity in Madagascar has grown at an annual average rate of approximately 7%.

The project is expected to help the country meet its increasing demand for power reliably and in a cost-effective and environment-friendly manner. 

The plant was build through advanced technology transfer from industrialized countries.

The project was the first to introduce sizable solar PV technology, and associated skills in Madagascar.

GreenYellow used the local workforce to build the plant.

The project hired more than 80 people for the construction phase and relies on 10 permanent technicians to ensure operation and maintenance.

Through this project and their action, GreenYellow is helping the region.

The project is expected to include benefits to trade and tourism, as well as the agricultural and industrial sectors due to reliable electricity supply.

CSR Action

Schools have been offered on-site and commented visits of the solar power plant. This action helps to promote renewable energy across the young generation.
