CUSTOMER STORY:

MADAGASCAR

BRINGING POWER TO 100 RURAL VILLAGES

 

In Madagascar, only 26.9% of residents were connected to electricity in 2019, to solve this need, Madagascar launched an initiative to supply state-of-the-art microgrid solutions at an affordable rate for villagers. In the village of Belobaka, despite an intense rainy season and unreliable roads, the team completed a solar microgrid installation within an impressive five months. The microgrid provides 83 kW of power at peak operation and has a 315 kW battery with a 110 kVA generator set for backup. As a result 5,000 people and 800 homes now have access to power. These power systems have drastically improved the villagers quality of life by improving education, entertainment, health, comfort, protection, and productivity.
