French Qair intends to develop 2 PV power plants in Chad

Chad wants to use its natural resources to increase people’s access to electricity. In collaboration with the private sector, it has launched several solar power projects.

French energy company Qair is currently developing two solar power plants with a combined capacity of 30 MW in Chad. The two plants with a total value of around 30 million euros are planned to be built in 2022.

Preliminary studies have already been carried out for infrastructure and a contract to buy back their production has been signed with the National Electricity Company (SNE), the national power company. Site identification studies have identified the boroughs of Lamadji and Gassi, located north and southeast of the capital N’Djamena respectively, as suitable for both infrastructures.

These are expected to enter service in 2022 and will be operated by Qair over 20 years.

The construction of these two power plants is part of the government’s policy of diversifying its sources and securing its electricity supply.

According to the executive’s forecasts, the use of this more economical energy source than diesel will in the long run reduce the cost of energy in the country. It will also contribute to meeting the country’s climate targets, which plan to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 18.2% by 2030 compared to 2010 levels.
