Contributing towards a green Nigeria.
Solar Community Solutions
Solar Energy has begun to play a pivotal role in transforming the lives of those across rural Nigeria. From providing essential lighting to essential services such as healthcare and education, to providing solutions for irrigation and clean water supply – solar is transforming the world’s rural development initiatives – and we at Green Energy are working hard to expand these initiatives across rural Nigeria.
Nigeria’s geographical location, positions it optimally for solar power dependency. The country has among the highest levels of solar irradiance in the world, and this provides a unique opportunity, to those who seek it, to effectively and efficiently manage our energy sources. Since grid power does not reach many parts of rural Nigeria, the decentralized distribution of solar power, in fact, is the only answer for some villages.
Another major advantage for solar installations in rural areas is that the systems themselves are modular – meaning that they can be installed at single or multiple sites, be easily transported and conveniently expanded, according to specific requirements. Further, due to the fact that they do not have any moving parts, Solar Systems are low-maintenance, long-service technologies, with no recurring costs or technical issues for users.
Solar water pumping systems and solar borehole solutions are Photovoltaic Systems, that have energy efficient DC Surface Centrifugal pumps powered by the panels. The systems are typically used for providing potable water in the remotest of locations - all as part of a self-sustained power and delivery system.
Providing lighting through Solar systems enables community centers to hold scheduled meetings, conduct religious services and provide entertainment for the local community. Our lighting solutions can be customized to meet the specific needs of villages and communities across rural Nigeria.
Basic Health-care and Education
Rural health centers can use Solar systems for lighting and critical refrigeration. Clinics across rural Nigeria still rely on poor lighting from lanterns. Introducing solar powered lights will enable clinics to serve patients through the evening and provide emergency power for critical health-care needs. In addition, with solar lighting available, rural schools can extend teaching hours, well into the afternoon.
