Solar energy investors request more land to build solar farms

Six solar energy investors have sent requests to the Egyptian Electricity Transmission Company (EETC) to be granted land to build more solar energy farms in Egypt, Al Borsa reports. Lamya Youssef, the general manager for renewable energy projects at EETC, told the paper their requests would be reviewed next week. The companies are contracted to construct build solar farms linked to the national grid under the feed-in tariff, under which the plots would be provided on a usufruct basis. (Read in Arabic)
