Gitega Solar Electrification

Gitega Solar Power Plant

The overwhelming majority of people in Gitega do not have access to any kind of electric power, most of them are still dependent on fuelwood . Matrix Africa, aided by the Burundi Ministry of Energy and Mines and the renewable energy company Solar Tide propose to address this issue by first performing a feasibility study for, then installing, a 10MW solar photovoltaic power plant in Zege, Gitega, Burundi. The proposed site for the photovoltaic power plant lies 100 km to the east of Burundi’s capital, Bujumbura, and 3.3 km by road to the north of the provincial capital of Gitega
