It is always the same misleading statement: "will supply more than 100 thousand families". It means, when the wind blows. If not, there has to be some backup capacity installed. So no power station can be taken out of operation, but has to switch from continuous to intermittent mode, ruining their business model.
Expensive energy for a poor country.
