Mountain View signed a partnership agreement with SolarizEgypt to establish the first solar power plant in Mountain View, the North Coast, to provide electricity to cover the needs of the project’s residences. Mountain View is to operate a renewable energy system on Monday, July 1, 2019.
The project works as a system for the production of solar energy and converting it to electric energy to produce about 800kW, to supply about 30% of residents’ electricity needs throughout the year, according to Amr Soliman, owner and chairperson of Mountain View.
Soliman said in press statement on Wednesday that the project is located on an area of about 6,700 sqm in the service area in the compound.
Egypt’s location enjoys the best solar brightness, and it has an abundance of solar energy giving the country great opportunities for expansion in the field of solar technology and its applications.
Soliman explained that Egypt’s vision for the energy sector is based on recent studies that confirm the great potentials for solar energy. He pointed out that despite the high costs of setting up these stations, Mountain View insists on emulating the state’s direction in this regard.
