Climate change can negatively impact the performance of solar power plants and this needs to be considered in planning and implementing similar projects. In the past 3 years, due to climate change, the project encountered more cloudy and rainy days than estimated at project appraisal. This has caused less solar direct irradiation, negatively impacting electricity generation. This experience may be useful in planning and implementing future solar projects.
