Support Madagascar's first solar PV project, the world's third most vulnerable country to climate change
The solar photovoltaic power plant of Ambatolampy is developed by Green Yellow Madagascar, a subsidiary of the company Green Yellow (French group Casino specialized in decentralized energy generation). With an installed capacity of 20 MWp, this solar plant is the first one installed in the country and, to date, the largest in the Indian Ocean.
The Ambatolampy solar power plant is composed of 73,008 photovoltaic solar modules. The expected production is 34 982 MWh and is fully injected into the national electricity grid, replacing the energy mix of the country (mainly oil-fired power plants) with clean and renewable energy. About 80 people worked on the site during construction. 10 jobs were created for the maintenance of the plant. The plant was inaugurated by President Hery Rajaonarimampianina on June 23, 2018.
