PV Kraftwerk Otjozondjupa, Namibia

HopSol Otjozondjupa SolarPark – 5 MW

Utility-scale pv power plant – Namibia, 2016

Otjozondjupa Solar Park, developed by HopSol Africa, was built within only 3 months and is the largest grid-connected solar PV plant in Namibia to date. The 5 MW PV power plant accounts for approx. 1 percent of the country’s total electricity capacity and produces enough power to supply 3,700 households in Namibia.

The project displaces 19,000 metric tons of water per year since solar power requires no water for power generation and consumes less water than most other conventional and renewable generation technologies in the production process.
