Uganda to Make Solar Panels
: "Construction is expected to start by the end of the year on the $500,000 plant to be located in Kyambogo near Kampala. It is funded by the Danish Development Agency (Danida) as a joint venture between a Ugandan company, RAcell Uganda and a Danish company RAcell Denmark. Mr George Sizoomu, Executive director RAcell Uganda told BusinessWeek that the panels will be made using raw material imported from Europe. "We have to invest quite a lot to be able to produce. In about three months time, the factory will be operational and with the production in place, prices will definitely go down," he said." 9:30:46 AM
