Al-Wahat Al-Bahareya is located in the western desert of Egypt and is an isolated agricultural area. Having no grid power, land owners relied mainly on generators for power supply.
GILA Electric used Schneider Electric’s on-grid string inverters and DEIF’s solar hybrid controllers to successfully complete a 1MWp solar/hybrid power plant in Al-Wahat Al-Bahareya that is also connected to Gensets.
GILA Electric had been awarded the project in Q2 2020 and it reached TOC in Q1 2021. Moreover, a case study was made by DEIF on the project and you can find it available on their Website
