Empower begins selling electricity to NDEDC from WtE plant in Kafr El Sheikh

Energy group Empower began selling power to the North Delta Electricity Distribution Company (NDEDC) from its 350-920 kWh biogas power plant in Kafr El Sheikh, where operations launched a few days ago, according to CEO Hatem El Gamal. The plant is currently selling electricity at a feed-in tariff rate of EGP 0.92 per kWh, but it looks like Empower wants to renegotiate the price up to the standard waste-to-energy (WtE) tariff of EGP 1.40 per kWh set by the Cabinet last month, according to El Gamal. Empower plans to open four new power plants in Kafr El Sheikh for EGP 387 mn.
