Cameroon : North Region Steps Out of Darkness

Photovoltaic in the North-West region

Cameroon government provides photovoltaic solar power plant to boost electricity supply in the North region.

This comes after the population had been experiencing frequent blackouts for long periods, especially after the 2021 AFCON hosted by Cameroon in January 2022.

The Lagos Electricity Dam which was highly depended on, is said to have had a drastic drop in its output. According to sources, it is now able to produce only 13 megawatts down from its capacity of 72megawatt.

The new photovoltaic solar power plant built on a surface of 42 hectares , has started to produce results though it is yet to be completed.

It has already begun injecting two megawatts into the electricity supply system , out of the 15 megawatts expected , reports indicate .

“15 additional megawatts provided from the Guider Powerplant could be very advantageous to reduce the impact of the electricity shortages the population is currently experiencing” Michel Nzo Director of project explains .

A solution which brings light to the Northern part of the country still keeps other regions in darkness as population awaits same initiatives.
