The Monte Trigo PV power plant in Cape Verde is celebrating five years of continuous operations. The PV plant became Cape Verde’s first rural micro grid with 100% renewable energy generation.

The Monte Trigo PV Power Plant was co-financed under the SESAM-ER by the EU and Municipality of Porto Novo, and was implemented by a consortium of companies specialized in renewable energies, led by Empresa Aguas de Ponta Preta.

During these five years of activity, the plant has produced 169 MWh of solar electricity, of which 152 MWh were consumed, allowing for Cape Verde to forgo the consumption of 49,465 liters of diesel and the emission of 148 metric tons of CO2.
