The 1 Megawatts (MW) maiden solar power plant in Riverside is a game-changer in the education sector, with great potential to transform the city of Kitwe into an academic hub and Zambia into a destination of choice for solar technology education.
The completed project is exciting because it will be used to not only develop a curriculum for solar training in Zambia but also offer practical learning at degree level to be offered by the Copperbelt University.
Students from across the continental wishing to study Renewable Energy with bias towards Solar Power now have a reason to travel to Kitwe, Zambia and enrol at the Copperbelt University.
