Why Use the 20kw Solar Energy System?
In the rural areas of Angola, electricity is a luxury many people cannot afford.
However, through the installation of a 20kW solar energy system, we have provided power for schools and other surrounding areas.
By storing the generated electricity in batteries located in a nearby building, we can cater to the school’s power needs and needs but also provide additional electricity for the rest of the village.
Improving Education and Empowering Communities
There’s no doubt that 20kW solar energy systems can make a big difference in previously unconnected villages.
After sunset, the power stored in the 2V batteries of the solar system enables students to study with lights.
This has significantly improved their learning efficiency and led to a remarkable 95% exam pass rate.
Additionally, electricity availability in the evening enables adults to participate in night school.
By doing so, they compensate for the regret and necessity of not improving your academic qualifications due to your employment obligations.
Overcoming Energy Challenges in Remote Areas
Until the introduction of photovoltaic energy, most rural households relied on kerosene, dry batteries, and car batteries to meet their lighting and limited electricity needs.
Almost every family spends $4 to $10 per month on these non-renewable energy sources.
It should be noted, however, that Angola possesses one of the most abundant resources – the sun.
Harnessing this solar potential provides a sustainable and feasible choice for villages far from urban centers.
How much does a 20kW solar energy system cost?
Building mini-grids in each village has proven to be the most effective way of achieving rural electrification.
With an average cost of $1 per watt for 20kW solar power generation fields and a total implementation cost of $20,000 (including solar system product costs, transportation, and installation), the expenses are considerably lower than previously incurred $4 to $10 per unit electricity cost.
This saves the village a lot of money but also ensures access to reliable and sustainable power.
Finally, we conclude
Solar energy systems offer a remarkable solution to rural electrification in Angola.
By installing a 20kW solar energy system and storing electricity in batteries, schools and the surrounding areas now have electricity access.
This advancement has improved education outcomes and empowered communities, enabling them to participate in evening educational programs. Increase social and economic benefits, improve the talent pool, and enrich people’s knowledge.
Solar energy systems provide a viable and sustainable option for villages previously without electricity.
By implementing mini-grids, we can lessen dependence on non-renewable energy sources, making Angola a greener and more energy-independent nation.
