The owner of a massive fish processing industry in Djibouti needed electricity for his newly built facility. The factory’s location means that there is no grid energy available, although this is likely to change in the near future. As a solution, a solar-diesel hybrid system was designed, constructed, and installed. The Independent Energy Fund provided funding for this project in the form of a solar leasing contract. Once the grid is completely operating, the solar system will be able to be integrated.
