APUA DELEGATES VISIT 60MW JCM SOLAR POWER PLANT
As part of the 57th APUA Annual Meetings held in Lilongwe- Malawi, the host utility Electricity Generation Company (Malawi) Limited (EGENCO) organized a technical and touristic visit to JCM’s Salima Solar plant in the lakeshore district of Salima.
The central theme of this year’s APUA meetings was on Africa’s energy transition from fossil fuels to clean source energy. To sum up the event, delegates that attended the meetings were taken to Salima to appreciate JCM Solar plant that produces about 60MW from its 228 000 solar panels.
Amongst the visitors, one delegate from Ghana was amazed about how JCM is able to generate the total 60MW from the solar plant and was eager to learn and implement in his country. APUA Director General, Tella Abel Didier also applauded the work that JCM is doing in generating electricity through the solar plant.
“It is good that this solar plant is able to generate a good amount of electricity to add on the grid on top of what Egenco is generating’’ he added.
JCM appreciated Egenco for considering the solar plant as one place that they considered for the visit by the international delegates.
JCM is one of the independent power producer in Malawi operating 60MW solar plant in Salima and 20MW plant in Golomoti Dedza.
