Support The First Solar PV Project In Mali, a Least Developed Country.
0MW installed capacity
The Kita solar farm is Akuo Energy’s first project to begin construction in Africa. With installed capacity of 50MW it is the biggest solar farm in West Africa. It will help the country begin the move towards energy independence that is vital to its development.
Initiated by the ‘R20-Regions of Climate Action’ NGO founded by Arnold Schwarzenegger, the project will meet the vital energy needs of a region suffering from significant electricity shortages. The Kita project will also generate numerous social benefits, creating many local and sustainable jobs. As an integrated company, Akuo Energy is setting up a local subsidiary, employing only Malian teams.
