Belobaka : 100 villages benefit from solar electricity
The solar power plant for the creation of the project of development of mini-network of distribution with a technology of stockage has been inaugurated this Friday 27th October 2017, in Belobaka, region Bongolava. The inauguration of that central symbolizes the official beginning of the project which aims at providing solar electricity to 100 villages neighboring. A quantity of solar electricity equivalent to 10 megawatts and a battery which can store until 88 megawatts per hour have been in this way established. About 27 000 companies and housework will benefit from electricity. The Ambassador of the United States, Robert Yamate, the President of the Republic Hery Rajaonarimampianina and representative of the factories Henri Fraise, have inaugurated together the solar power plant.
