FUNAE with renewable energy projects in Matchedje and Majaua - Mozambique

As part of the "Energy for All" national programme, the Government of Mozambique recently inaugurated in Matchedje, Sangha District in the Zambezia Province, a "mini" solar grid with a capacity of 223 kWp and a 3 distribution network,3 km in average voltage and a total of 6.6 km in low voltage that provides electricity to more than 315 families in the region.


In Majaua, District of Milange in the Province of Zambezia, was built, and is already in operation, the small hydro power plant, which has a distribution grid of electricity of 30 km in average voltage and a total of 29 km in low voltage. This plant has a capacity of 595kW and currently benefits from it, around 3500 families.


The implementation of these projects, financed by FUNAE, an associate of ALER, is one of the many interventions that the Government of Mozambique says it will develop, in order to stimulate access to electricity in rural areas, focusing on renewable energy sources.
