EDF Renewables and El Sewedy Electric have commissioned two 65 MW solar PV projects in Benban, in the Aswan province of southern Egypt. Both projects have received funding from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and from Proparco. They were developed as part of the second phase of the national electricity feed-in tariff programme. Power generation will be sold to the Egyptian Electricity Transmission Company (EETC) under a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA).

The projects are part of the larger Benban solar complex, which is expected to reach a total capacity of 1,800 MW. This additional solar capacity should help the Egyptian government meet its target of 20% of renewable power generation by 2020.
