Sal Solar PV plant

Description
The Sal Solar PV Project was one of the very first utility-scale solar PV projects in West Africa that demonstrated the feasibility of the technology in Cabo Verde and the region. The project, together with its sister project in Santiago and more importantly the Cabeólica wind parks, also contributed to an increase of the share of renewable energy in Cabo Verde's electricity mix from 1.3% in 2010 to 22% in 2013.
 
Electra is managing the plant under a concession agreement. Certain operation and maintenance services are provided by Aguas de Ponta Preta (APP)
