The Overview!

Fueling The Transition To Renewable Power.

The 16kWP Hybrid Solar Mini Grid Electrification project in Ihuama Community was implemented by ACOB Lighting Technology Limited, a leading renewable energy company. The primary objective of the project was to provide reliable and sustainable electricity to the previously underserved community.

The project involved the installation of a hybrid solar mini-grid system with a capacity of 16 kilowatts peak (kWP). The system combined solar photovoltaic (PV) panels, battery storage, and a backup generator to ensure continuous power supply, even during periods of low solar radiation.

In addition to the technical aspects, the project also focused on capacity building and community engagement. ACOB Lighting Technology Limited conducted training sessions to educate community members on the operation and maintenance of the system, empowering them to manage and sustain the mini-grid independently.

The electrification of Ihuama Community had a significant impact on the residents’ lives. Access to electricity improved education by enabling the use of computers and other educational resources in schools. It also enhanced healthcare services by facilitating the operation of medical equipment and refrigeration of vaccines. Additionally, the availability of electricity boosted economic activities, allowing businesses to operate more efficiently and create new job opportunities.

The project demonstrated the potential of renewable energy solutions in addressing energy poverty and fostering sustainable development. The electrification of Ihuama Community not only improved the quality of life for its residents but also served as a model for other underserved communities, inspiring the adoption of clean and affordable energy solutions.
