The Hybrid Power Plant powers the city of Las Anod, in the North of Somalia, through a 2.4 MW off-grid microgrid, where two diesel generators were already connected. The system is supplied for an innovative indoor solution. Las Anod’s economy is mainly centered on pastoralism and communications, while mobile phone and money transfer services provide almost 40% of tax revenues. Several Somali banks also have branches in Las Anod such as Salaam Bank, Amal Bank, Dara-Salaam Bank and Dahabshiil Bank.
