The second component, solar power will support investments on construction of grid-connected solar photo voltaic (PV) power generation capacity outside of the central energy system (CES), including the detailed design, supply, construction, commissioning, and operation and maintenance of a 10 megawatt-peak (MWp) solar PV power plant in western energy system (WES). The third component, capacity building will provide technical and operational assistance to strengthen the institutional, organizational, and technical capacity of the Ministry of Energy (MOE) and the project implementing units (PIUs) under BSEDN, EBEDN, and WES, to support day-to-day project implementation and management, including provision of training and carrying out of studies.
