Portuguese Energy Company to sponsor Tanzania solar power project at Aga Khan Hospital

8 July 2020

Portuguese electric utilities company (EDP) will sponsor eight sustainable and renewable energy projects in Tanzania, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, and Nigeria to promote access to clean energy in particularly remote and underprivileged areas and to help tackle energy poverty in that region. EDP selected partners to work with;  the Aga Khan Foundation (AKF) was chosen for Tanzania. AKF proposed the creation of the Mwanza Solar Switch, a 39.6 kWp solar system for the Aga Khan Hospital in Tanzania, and eight solar water heating devices. The goal is to avoid the frequent power outages, cut on the electricity bill, and replace the diesel consumption of backup generators.
