The island nation of Mauritius has taken another step towards energy independence as it signed agreements with international firms to supply solar and wind power. With these agreements the island now expects to have a total renewable energy capacity of 60 MW connected to its grid by 2015.
The Central Electricity Board (CEB) signed an energy supply agreement with Saraco which will set up a 15 MW solar photovoltaic (PV) project. It also signed an energy supply agreement with Aerowatt for a 9 MW wind energy project.
Last year, the CEB signed a deal with Suzlon Padgreen for a 29.4 MW wind energy project. Yet another deal is expected to be signed for a 10 MW solar PV project over the next few weeks. In total, Mauritius will have renewable energy generation capacity of more than 60 MW over the next few years.
