Akuo Afrique's flagship project, the 50 MW Kita solar power plant injected its first kilowatt-hours into the Malian grid in early 2020. Initiated by the R20 - the NGO Regions for Climate chaired by Arnold Schwarzenegger, the project contributes to increasing the rate of electrification, an essential parameter in economic and social development and helps reduce dependence on hydropower which is under threat from climate change, as well as on imported fossil fuels and the use of wood fuel from natural inland forests.

Complementary agricultural activity has also been developed on an open plot of the concession land in order to increase the positive impact of the project for the local population. After providing up to 350 local jobs during the construction phase, nearly 200 sustainable female jobs have already been created through market gardening and the cultivation of jatropha, soybean and cashew nuts, as well as chicken breeding.
