Our objective is to develop a state-of-the-art 40MW Hybrid Solar PV energy plant a pilot project in Kabwe, central province of Zambia and install another 150 MW as a roll-out project under phase two. This will balance the electricity mix and increase access to a reliable power supply. The advantages of solar energy far more outweigh the existing hydropower. Solar energy is environmentally friendly and all-weather friendly, be it in drought seasons or rain season it simply embraces climate change compared to the traditional hydropower that fails to meet the electricity demand during drought seasons. Hydropower has a higher cost of plant setup compared to solar energy. Zambia has an average 2,000-3,000 hours of sunshine per year. Average irradiation is 5.5 kWh/m2/day, with northern areas recording the highest global solar irradiation, of 2,300 kWh/m2/year. This solar potential makes solar energy the best alternative to balance the electricity mix and increase access to electricity.
