On behalf of the Zambian Ministry of Energy, the GET FiT Zambia Secretariat is pleased to announce the launch of the Request for Proposal (RfP) for the 100 MW Solar PV tender. Prequalified companies and consortia have been invited to submit their proposals.

The process will be concluded in early 2019 based on a thorough evaluation of technical and financial criteria. Applicants selected for award will sign a 25-year Power Purchase Agreement with ZESCO to deliver low-cost clean energy to the Zambian people.
