The United Arab Emirates (UAE) plans to invest in a solar power project in Afghanistan that would produce 3,000 megawatts of electricity.

A memorandum of understanding was signed Wednesday between the government of Afghanistan and an Emirati electricity company in Kabul.

Wahid Tawhidi, spokesman of the power company (Breshna), said that the UAE company would soon start initial and technical evaluation and would then begin investment on practical part of the project.

He called the project an important step for Afghanistan’s self-sufficiency in electric power, which needs at least 2,000 megawatts of electricity.
