Construction of the Rucanzogera mini hydropower project in #Rwanda is set to commence. This is after a power purchase agreement (PPA) was signed for the project between Rwanda
Energy Group (REG) and
Norwegian company, #Empower New Energy and its partners. Upon completion the small #hydropower plant will have a capacity of 1.9 MW and also avoid carbon dioxide emissions of 7,000 tons per year. Approximately 10,000 people in rural Rwanda will benefit from the project.
