Workers lay the groundwork for a 53 MW power facility in Senegal, which is being built with the support of up to $100 million in OPIC financing.  The project is OPIC’s first financing of grid-connected power project in Senegal, and one of several power generation projects OPIC is supporting as part of the U.S. Power Africa initiative, aimed at doubling the number of people in Sub-Saharan Africa who have access to power. Last year, OPIC surpassed its initial $1.5 billion pledge to private sector-led power projects under the initiative.
