JinkoSolar has delivered a solar plus ESS system to a microgrid project in Mozambique, where it will help overcome electricity shortages caused by inadequate utility access in the local community of Chipera, providing access to electricity in an area hitherto without network coverage.
With Mozambique largely dependent on diesel generators to meet national electricity demand, the country is being forced to place restrictions on power supply due to the rising cost of fossil fuels. The resultant power outages have been known to last for as long as 22 hours.
The microgrid project combines 103KWp of Jinko Tiger Neo PV panels with a 690KWh energy storage system, its modular design enabling a flexible battery configuration to provide a solution to local energy issues.
