Botswana said it’s seeking companies to build and operate a 200 megawatt concentrated solar power plant, its biggest clean energy project to date.

In an announcement on Tuesday, the Energy Ministry issued an invitation for companies to pre-qualify for the program, which would involve financing its construction and completing the project by 2027. The state-owned Botswana Power Corporation will buy the electricity produced.
