The Bulawayo Solar Project

Harnessing Zimbabwe's Solar Potential to Light the Path to a Greener Tomorrow

In the vibrant city of Bulawayo, positioned in the southwest of Zimbabwe, MarillionX ignites a beacon of sustainability and innovation with the launch of the Bulawayo Solar Project.

With a formidable installed capacity of 35 MW through a strategically designed PV solar park, we are not merely harnessing the abundant solar wealth of the region but also steering the nation towards a luminous future of energy independence and ecological balance.

Zimbabwe's Solar Resource

Zimbabwe is bestowed with a formidable solar resource, experiencing some of the world’s highest Global Horizontal Irradiation (GHI) levels, even surpassing nations like Morocco, South Africa, and Australia.

With an average solar irradiation of 20 MJ/m2, 3,000 hours of sunshine annually, and an average of 8.3 sun hours per day, Zimbabwe is strategically positioned to become a solar powerhouse.

Power Scenario and Future Outlook

While the nation experiences a power deficit of approximately 1.5 GW and faces challenges with existing hydro and coal power generation, solar energy emerges as a beacon of hope and an unexplored potential, particularly given the significant decline in solar cost in recent years.

As MarillionX embarks on this journey, we are not merely introducing a project; we are laying the foundation for a sustainable future, ensuring that every watt of power generated not only lights up a home but also contributes towards the nation’s energy independence and environmental sustainability.

Embrace the Future

Join us as we embark on this journey of sustainability, impact, and innovation.

Through strategic investment, collaborative partnerships, and collective will, together, we can illuminate a future where energy empowers nations, communities, and every individual towards a brighter, sustainable future.
