Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Ethiopia would be the ideal place for combining the Millenium Dam with photovoltaics. During the wet season the reservoir is full; during the dry season when the sun shines, there are often blackouts due to the water running out. The dam has a capacity factor of only 33%, for a nominal power of 6 GW. PV would be the ideal way to stretch the water supply and eliminate the intermittency.
