Botswana Power Corp. (BWC) has issued a tender for the construction of a 100-MW solar plant. The company has invited interested parties to submit bids. The solar plant is expected to aid the country in meeting its growing power demands.
BPC said it expects energy demand to more than double to 1,359 MW by 2035 from around 600 MW.
“BPC would therefore like to engage companies into a joint venture for the development, implementation and operation of a 100 MW solar power plant with suitable storage capacity,” it said.
The development is expected to start two years from the appointment of a preferred partner.
