Solarcentury installs 506kWp hybrid plant at ALP facility, Tatu City

NAIROBI, Kenya, Sep 17 – Solarcentury East Africa has installed a 506 kWp hybrid solar PV plant at Africa Logistics Properties (ALP) that aims to save tenants Sh12 million each year.

The solar system has been mounted on the rooftop of ALP’s three warehouses and is expected to generate 800,000 kiloWatts per hour annually.

The hybrid system, which consists of 1,840 solar PV panels and ten solar PV inverters, will reduce ALP’s reliance on the energy from the grid and diesel generators.

Guy Lawrence, Director at Solarcentury in East Africa said, the renewable energy company works with organisations who want to improve the sustainability of their operations, “and we’re pleased to be able to help private companies to save money too.”

The project has been completed in five months.

Other successful undertakings by Solarcentury include Africa’s largest solar carport at Nairobi’s Garden City Mall, installation of three solar PV plants, with a total capacity of 1,154 kWp at the Nairobi-based International Centre of Insect Physiology and Ecology (icipe), 1 MWp solar PV at Williamson Tea at its Changoi Tea Farm, and installation of almost 1 MWp of solar roof system for London Distillers in Athi River, Kenya.
