Cambodia’s installed solar power capacity has increased by 60 MW after a new photovoltaic (PV) park was tied to the national grid, the Phnom Penh Post reports, citing a government official. The solar farm is located in Kampong Chhnang province in the central part of the country and is owned by a SchneiTec Renewable Co Ltd — a joint venture of Chinese and local companies. After its connection to the power network last weekend, Cambodia’s grid-connected PV capacity has increased to 150 MW, Victor Jona, a spokesperson for the Ministry of Mines and Energy, told the newspaper. Apart from the Kampong Chhnang plant, Cambodia has two other operational PV parks with capacities of 10 MW and 80 MW, respectively.
