NAMIBIA'S first solar power park.

NAMIBIA'S first solar power park, near Omaruru, is expected to add 4,5MW of electricity to NamPower's national grid by early next year.

The N$120 million Omburu Solar Park, owned by French investor InnoSun, is situated about five kilometres south of Omaruru and is the first renewable energy project in Namibia by an independent power producer (IPP).

Comprising of about 30 000 solar panels, the power park occupies 15 hectares. The panels are on self-adjusting 'tracker' mountings that allow them to face the sun all day long.
