KaramSolar in talks with 5 banks to secure billion-pound solar plants
Published in Amwal Al Ghad on 13 - 10 - 2019

KarmSolar, Egypt's fastest growing solar energy solutions company, is negotiating with five local and international banks to secure 1 billion Egyptian pounds ($61.4 million) loan to finance some solar power plants.
Ahmed Zahran, the company's chief executive, said KarmSolar aims to obtain the funding before the end of this year to implement the targeted plants and sell the energy produced for private companies at competitive prices.
Zahran told Daily News Egypt that the list of banks in negotiation with the company includes the International Finance Corporation (IFC) and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).
However, Zahran did not disclose the rest of the banks, saying, it's also possible to include Banque Misr to the list, after the bank has concluded an agreement recently with the company to finance 230 million pounds worth solar projects."
He explained that the loan offered by Banque Misr was allocated to finance the construction of 24MW solar power plants. KarmSolar sells the electricity produced by these projects to the Dakahlia Group under an agreement signed before the loan was obtained.
Zahran added that his company will provide 93 percent of the Dakahlia Poultry and Dakahlia Agriculture's power needs for 30 years. Moreover, KarmSolar seeks to establish an administrative headquarters next to each of its power stations to follow up their performance and provide maintenance throughout the contract period.
He said that the company is continuing its plan to implement solar power plants and sell production to the private sector. The company secures financing for its projects from banks, and contributes part of its own sources to retain the ownership of the plants and sell energy on a net metering scheme.
He explained that the company is negotiating with several companies in Minya and Beni Suef governorates to sell electricity to them. It seeks to change the electricity distribution system, and to extend the customer base of solar energy.
KaramSolar contracted with Cairo Three A Group last February to implement a 100MW solar power plant in Bahariya Oasis to provide electricity for a 26,000-feddan poultry project.
