SODIC, a real estate developer, and Electro-Mechanical for Energy (EME) have entered into an agreement to install 400 rooftop solar plants at SODIC’s VYE development. This project, the largest residential solar initiative in Africa, boasts a 2-megawatt capacity and an annual production potential of 3.5 gigawatt-hours. It is expected to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 1,600 tons, equivalent to planting 35,000 trees.
The contract signing involved Ayman Amer, General Manager of SODIC, and Mohamed El-Sheikh, CEO of EME, along with EME’s partners, Suntech for Solar Modules and Sungrow for Inverters, two major international companies in the field.
Ayman Amer, SODIC’s General Manager, expressed their commitment to implementing sustainability practices and reducing carbon emissions. He highlighted the significance of this project as the largest residential solar endeavor in Africa and looked forward to further collaborations to achieve sustainability goals.
