Siwa 10 MW Solar Power Plant


The Siwa 10 MW solar PV power plant is one of the largest PV diesel hybrid systems in the world and was the largest solar power installation in Egypt at the time of its completion in March 2015. The project is the first utility-scale solar power installation in the country and accounts for 30% of the grid capacity of Siwa City and its adjoining areas, supplying clean, safe and secure electricity to over 6,000 homes. Unique to this project is the plant’s integration to an existing micro-grid of diesel generators.
