Taipei, Sept. 21 (CNA) Delta Electronics, Inc. (台達電), Taiwan’s power management
solutions provider, announced on Monday that it has contributed to the largest utility-scale solar power plant in the African country Namibia.
The plant, Omburu Solar Photovoltaic Park, is expected to generate a total of 13,500 megawatt hours of clean and reliable electricity annually, reducing CO2 emission by around 6,750 tons, the company said.
Built northwest of the city of Windhoek, capital of Namibia, on 16 hectares of arid land, the plant uses string inverters supplied by Delta.
String inverters convert the direct current (DC) electricity solar cells produce to alternating current (AC) power that is used by businesses and homes. [FULL STORY]
