Rural electrification is the process of providing electrical power to remote areas. Rural areas have always suffered a lack of reliable electricity; advances towards eradicating this problem have been made over the past decade. However, the traditional method of transferring power all the way from power grids have proven to be very expensive; the fact is that the government has to provide all the high tension cables and towers, spend on all transportation and civil works required and other hidden extra costs.
Another solution to this problem is setting up mini-grids near these remote areas to facilitate the transmission of power to homes and farms. This is where we come in, our engineers have long-term experience, working from 2009 at off-grid configurations and supplying. We provide plants that are developed to supply energy in small remote villages, with a power from 30 to 100 PV kWp, and a battery capacity from 15.000 to 30.000 Ah. This green approach to generating energy is growing in Africa, for many reasons:
- Photovoltaics current prices are very competitive compared with oil traditional sources
- PV energy is produced in the place where it is consumed, with no costs for transmission and distribution
- With renewable energy you can limit pollution and gas emissions Photovoltaics technology is particularly suitable for remote places and agriculture applications, providing green and competitive energy
