Egypt produced around 45,000 megawatt of electricity per day (MW/d) during December 2018, an official source at the Ministry of Electricity told Amwal Al Ghad.

Electricity capacity increased after adding a number of solar power plants, combined cycle stations, and alternative energy stations to the national grid, the source said.

The country has started adding the feed-in-tariff (FiT) stations to the grid, which will increase the country’s electricity surplus and boost reserves.

Production capacities will support the ongoing electricity connection projects with Saudi Arabia and Sudan, which will allow exchanging surpluses between the countries during rush hours, the source pointed out.
