The Tororo Solar PV project is located just outside Tororo Town in the Tororo District, Eastern Uganda. The 10 MW plant has 32,240 solar modules on 14 hectares of land and became the second grid-connected solar power plant in Uganda. The Project commenced commercial operations in September 2017.
The facility operated to expected and forecast performance levels and showed no major issues or concerns for the first year of operations. The Project has not reported any deemed energy in 2018. Total generation during the year equalled approximately 15.8 GWh, in line with the planned annual generation.
The owners, Tororo Solar North Ltd., part of the Building Energy Group, finished the construction of an Early Childhood Development Centre which was inaugurated for use by the local community during December 2018.
