Supporting Energy Transition And Solar Development In Senegal.
0MWh of electricity/year
Meridiam, a French infrastructure asset manager, invested in the largest West African solar PV farm in Méouane, Senegal. This project is reducing the country dependance to fossil fuel and contributes to save governmental energy spending.
Méouane grid-connected solar photovoltaic plant holds an installed capacity of 29.49 MWp. The site covers an area of 64 hectares, and is equipped with 92,160 modules of 320 kWp each. Approximately 90% of Senegal energy demand is currently met with fossil fuel which implies a high carbon intensity for the grid. Méouane project directly contributes to diversify the energy mix and lower the carbon intensity.
