The project is part of MASEN’s Noor Atlas solar programme implemented by Onee which aims to develop solar energy in remote areas of Morocco, in line with the kingdom’s objective of increasing the share of renewable energy to 52% by 2030.

European Investment Bank (EIB), is financing the programme to the tune of US $131M.

The programme will enable Morocco to diversify its electricity mix and help reduce energy dependence on fossil fuels.
