UNHCR to Finance Solar Farm Dev't

The United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) has put up a tender for independent power producers to build photovoltaic (solar power) plants ranging from 60kW to 500kW of capacity. The Agency is currently accepting proposals for the construction of ground-mounted solar projects from producers who will finance, build and operate the solar plants. The final project will have a combined capacity of 1.8MW, and sites are expected to be deployed in combination with storage or diesel power generators along with diesel back up. The selected independent power producers are going to be awarded a long-term power purchase agreement (PPA), backed by the UNHCR’s Green Fund. The Green Fund is an innovative financing scheme that permits the Agency to contract out clean energy generation as a service through multi-year PPAs or similar leasing arrangements with private sector independent power producers.
