VoltaView: Mini-Grid-25 System Update

Date: 05/09/2022

NextEnergy Foundation is fully funding the assembly, transportation and installation of a Mini-Grid-25 system in the Tweyambe Secondary and High School, Tanzania.

The Mini-Grid-25 is a container-based solar and battery powered charging station which has been constructed using 2nd life components of solar panels and batteries. It will generate clean energy and drinking water for 15 years for 250 students and 500 neighbouring inhabitants.

After some delays, the Mini-Grid-25 was shipped from Hamburg on 22nd August and is expected to arrive in Dar el Salaam, Tanzania on 20th September. Please see a picture of the system leaving Hamburg above. An update on the shipment and installation will be shared later this month.
