Vodafone has launched a limited tender for the construction of a 3 MW solar power plant in El Dabaa area the governorate of Matrouh.

Mohamed El-Haddad, business development manager at Complete Energy Solutions (CES), said that his company had submitted an offer in Vodafone’s bid to build a 3 MW solar power plant using net metring with the aim to win the tender.

Net metring is a mechanism that gives owners of solar energy plants dues for the electricity they add to the grid. It includes the installation of a solar system connected to the government grid and a bidirectional metre. The metre is triggered when production generation is greater than consumption and adds value to the customer’s balance.

In the end, the amount of energy produced by the solar panels and the amount of energy consumed will be offset and the customer’s net bill will be either positive or negative.
