JCM has been developing a 17.5-40MWac solar photovoltaic project in the Golomoti district of the Republic of Malawi since mid-2013. JCM has negotiated a power purchase agreement (PPA) with the Electricity Supply Corporation of Malawi Limited (ESCOM). Following negotiations of the PPA, ESCOM released a call to tender for the supply of solar photovoltaic power in Malawi. JCM then submitted a proposal in response to the tender and was awarded the right to develop on a site near the Golomoti substation. JCM Power will be the long-term owner of the project upon reaching commercial operation in the second half of 2019.
This is the first energy project to be developed by an independent power producer (IPP) in Malawi. We are proud to work with the Government of Malawi in fast-tracking the IPP process.
