- JinkoSolar has delivered a solar plus ESS microgrid project in Mozambique with the company’s energy storage system.
- Their commissioning is believed to overcome the electricity shortages caused by weak and insufficient utilities in the community of Chipera Mozambique.
- It serves to open up areas that had never had access to electricity and network coverage.
As Mozambique depends on diesel generators to meet the national electricity demand, this country is contracting the power supply due to the rising costs of fossil fuels. The energy issue cripples economic of Mozambique economic development and paralyzes its citizens’ normal lives. The Mozambican are experiencing regular and more frequent power outages that can last for as much as 22 hours. Such an urgent situation stimulates the need for renewable energy installations.
The microgrid project combines both 103KWp of JinkoSolar’s Tiger Neo PV panels and 690KWh of JinkoSolar’s energy storage systems offers great potential to solve local energy issues. This solution is highly integrated with both PV, Power Conversion System, and batteries, simplifying the installation process. The modular design also enables a more flexible configuration of batteries so that customers can choose the best-fit one for their needs.
Their successful delivery also shed light on mitigating the national power shortage situation with PV and storage capacities with PV plus battery solutions.
