When completely equipped, it will generate sufficient energy for above one million Moroccans, with perhaps extra power to export to Europe. It is also noted, adding that the Noor-Ouarzazate power complex is placing Morocco on the map as a solar superpower.

They emphasized that the project highlights the nation’s fortitude to lessen reliance on fossil fuels, turn to amplified consumption of renewable energy, and move towards a low carbon development plan.

Noor project is Morocco’s first utility-scale solar energy complex and a crucial phase in the Moroccan Solar Energy Program, which intends to install 2 GW of solar power by 2020.

The three-plant Noor-Ouarzazate complex assumes to attain over 500 megawatts (MW) installed capacity, eventually providing power to 1.1 million Moroccans by 2018.

The plant is anticipated to lessen carbon emissions by 760,000 tons each year which could mean a diminution of 17.5 million tons of carbon emissions over 25 years, it enlightened, emphasizing that endeavors were planned to speed up cost reduction and the commercial implementation of large-scale low-greenhouse-gas emitting generation technologies.
