KarmSolar launches Egypt’s first off-grid solar plant

KarmSolar has inaugurated Egypt’s first off-grid solar power plant, Al Borsa reported. Last year, the renewable energy firm became the first company licensed to sell electricity produced off-grid from solar energy to private consumers. The small plant, which has a capacity of 1 MW, was built on a dairy farm owned by a subsidiary of Juhayna. The plant will spare the farm having to consume 600k litres of diesel per year and will reduce emissions by 1.62k tons of carbon dioxide per year.
