Sun Africa’s Angola Solar Project includes seven utility-scale projects, including one installation that is the largest utility-scale solar installation in Africa.
At 188.88 MWdc, the Biopio site in Benguela is the largest single solar PV project in Sub-Saharan Africa.
This site in Benguela, Benguela, is the only other project in the Sub-Saharan region in the 100MW range, outside of South Africa.
In four southern provinces of Angola, Sun Africa is deploying 728 MW of utility-scale solar PV, solar minigrids with battery storage, home power kits, and potable water, providing electrification to more than two million people.
In addition to 2 utility-scale solar projects, Sun Africa is installing 65 new solar minigrids, 205 solar power cabin systems and over 60,000 solar home systems in Angola’s Southern Provinces.
Sun Africa’s Utility-Scale Solar in Nigeria includes approximately one Gigawatt of utility-scale solar power generation, battery storage, distribution infrastructure, and an advanced grid asset management system.
Sun Africa is installing over 200 minigrids and solar cabins in some of the most remote corners of Nigeria, bringing reliable, affordable solar energy to rural communities that have never had access to electricity before.
Solar cabins provide between 50 kWp and 200 kWp of clean energy each, all without requiring the costly step of expanding the national grid.
Sun Africa is constructing a solar cabin pilot system in a rural, off-grid location in Nigeria, providing a modular “plug-and-play” solar power generation and storage solution that will inform and inspire future projects.
The U.S. Africa Leaders’ Summit in Washington, DC, an event sponsored by Sun Africa that was held in December 2022, played an important role in further developing the commercial relationship between the U.S. and Africa.
Adam Cortese, the CEO of Sun Africa, attended the presidential roundtable with H.E. Joao Lourenco, the President of Angola. The dialogue that took place continued to position Sun Africa at the forefront of global renewable energy solutions.
During the Africa Business Forum 2022, the US government hosted 49 African leaders and the African Union in Washington, DC. The U.S. made deep commitments for equitable investment and calls for more African representation in global decision-making bodies.
During the Africa Business Forum held in December 2022, U.S. President Joe Biden captured the excitement of African nations when he said, “The United States is all in on Africa’s future.”
