Jaguar Overseas, an Indian engineering, procurement, and construction firm, has rolled out a $20-million solar power project in Afghanistan with support from the USAID and the Afghanistan government. The 10-megawatt project will provide solar power to more than a million customers of the Kandahar province, Jaguar Overseas Ltd (JOL). The engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) firm said it would be Afghanistan’s first tariff-based solar power plant. As part of the arrangement, JOL has signed a 15-year power purchase agreement with DABS, an independent and autonomous company established under The Corporations and Limited Liabilities Law of Afghanistan, entrusted with operating and managing electric power generation, import, transmission, and distribution throughout Afghanistan on a commercial basis.
