Namibia Kunene Solar Plant Completed

The Ministry of Environment, with the help of the Environmental Investment Fund (EIF), has completed the construction of a 150-kilowatt solar plant, in the Kunene region, Namibia. 

The plant worth N$5,2 million contributes to Namibia’s achievement of renewable energy targets. It is also part of the Environmental Investment Fund’s (EIF) climate change project. The Environment Minister Pohamba Shifeta said the project has created 25 jobs and will benefit to 9 200 people.  

For the solar plant and other climate change-related projects, the EIF secured N$130 million from the Green Climate Fund (GCF) through the Enhanced Direct Access (EDA) modality for these climate change projects.
