The Electricity Generation Company (Malawi) Ltd (EGENCO) is a company wholly owned by the Government of Malawi. EGENCO was incorporated on 9th September 2016 as a public company under the Companies Act (Cap 46:03) and commenced its full operations on 1st January 2017. EGENCO is mandated to generate electricity and has a total installed capacity of 373.37MW, being 350.8MW hydro and 22.57MW of diesel generators.
Unlike mainland Malawi where electricity is supplied by grid connected hydro and diesel power plants, off-grid diesel generators supply electricity on Likoma and Chizumulu Islands. Currently EGENCO incurs excessive costs in operating diesel generators at the two islands. In addition, EGENCO is facing logistical challenges in managing fuel supply for the plants. In order to reduce costs, the diesel generators are run for only 14 hours per day i.e. from 06:00 hours to 12:00 hours and from 14:00 hours to 22:00 hours. This compromises delivery of essential services such as water pumping, health, telecommunication, and the hospitality industry. EGENCO therefore intends to implement a 1.5MW Solar Photovoltaic (PV) electricity generation to be integrated with the existing diesel generation system on Likoma and Chizumulu Islands.
