The project includes approximately 3.5 MW of solar PV, upgrades to the diesel power plant and also adds battery storage to enable more renewable energy. A key challenge for this project is availability of land, so the analysis of sites for the solar PV systems focusses on rooftop sites and the main water reservoirs. A large portion of the allocated solar PV will be installed as a floating system on the reservoirs. The project also includes analysis of required battery capacity and network aspects to enable integration of the 3.5 MW of solar PV.
