The Electricity Regulatory Authority (ERA) in cooperation with GET FiT Uganda,
announce the conclusion of the process for the selection of the first 20 MW of
solar photovoltaic (PV) projects to be developed in Uganda.
After a competitive bidding process that was initiated in January 2014, the
projects proposed by the Ugandan-Italian consortium - Simba Telecom Ltd./
Building Energy SpA ( www.the-simba-group.com , www.buildingenergy.it )
and the consortium of Access / TSK Electronica (United Arab Emirates/Spain)
( www.access-advisory.com ) have been selected by ERA and the GET FiT
Investment Committee to benefit from the GET FiT Solar Facility, a dedicated
support scheme for solar PV development. The two consortia will now each
build, own and operate grid-connected solar projects of 2x5 MW in Tororo
and Soroti Districts respectively.
Funding for the facility is provided by the European Union via the EU Infrastructure Trust Fund.
