Utility Ethiopian Electric Power (EEP), headed by Engineer Azeb Asnake, on October 14th, 2014 signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with US-based company Green Technology Africa Inc. (GTA) to develop a 300 megawatt (MW) solar photovoltaic (PV) power project, GTA announced.
EEP declines to discuss details
Azeb Asnake confirmed the deal but declined to discuss details. “We are not ready to give any further details about the project and the MoU signed with the GTA,” said Misiker Negash, external relations director at the EEP.
GTA has, nevertheless, published the story on its website, applauding the Ethiopian government for, “supporting organizations that have been launched internationally by Ethiopians that have acquired years of training and professional expertise overseas and choose to return home to go with local specialists to demonstrate best practices and solutions for a greener Ethiopia.”
Green Technology Africa Inc. (GTA) was founded in Arlington, Virginia, US, by Dereje Mesfin to supply innovative energy technologies for local and international business.
