Detailed Description

This project involved the implementation of solar power systems in 10 rural clinics, as part of the overall plan for 34 clinics in Huila Province. Each site used 4KW of 175W highly efficient Fortune CP polycrystalline solar panels. Also included were solar batteries, charge controllers, inverters and mounting frames. Other systems included Fortune CP 150 Litre solar water heaters, solar water pumping systems for boreholes, and vaccine fridges. All systems were designed by Fortune CP engineers in United Kingdom. The project was funded by the Angolan government.

The beneficiaries of the project are over 100, 000 rural inhabitants who visit these clinics. As most of the rural communities in Angola have no access to electricity, this project has a lasting impact. Benefits include access to electricity and lighting 24/7, no need to use environment polluting diesel generators, access to clean water, use of telecommunication equipment, and heating of water without paying for electricity bills.
