The Bir El Haffay solar project consists of a 9.973-MWp PV plant located 9km South of Bir El Haffay, in the Sidi Bouzid Governorate. The project will include trackers and bifacial technology to optimise the plant yield. The electricity produced will be sold to the national utility (Société Tunisienne de l'Electricité et du Gaz -STEG) for 20 years.

This investment is part of a co-financing scheme with ElectriFI.

The project will help to balance electricity supply and demand with renewable sources of energy. The project will not only reduce the Tunisian electricity deficit but reduce the country’s dependence on thermal sources of energy.
