In Malawi, the Golomoti solar power plant is entering commercial operation. The 20 MW facility is located in the Dedza district and feeds its output into Malawi’s national power grid.

The Golomoti solar project is entering the commercial operation phase. This step comes after a successful test phase. The 28.5 MWp solar plant is coupled with a 5 MW/10 MWh battery storage system and will provide 20 MW of much needed power to the Malawian power grid.

The project is a partnership between Canadian independent power producer (IPP) JCM Power (JCM) and InfraCo Africa, an investment company of the Private Infrastructure Development Group (PIDG). The two companies signed a public-private partnership (PPP) with the Malawian government and a power purchase agreement (PPA) with the state-owned Electricity Supply Corporation of Malawi (ESCOM).
