A 29.16 kWp roof mounted solar array charging a 144 kWh battery bank and providing three phase AC power using three Sunny Island SMA inverters (SI8.0H-12) and one Solar inverter Sunny Triple Power 25 kW PV inverter. The system was designed so that solar power provides most of the power to the property but was also hybridized with a generator so that in times of poor sun an alternative source of power is available so as to ensure power security. The system is supplying power to a lodge, orphanage home and a bakery at Rhotia Valley, Karatu


Emmanuel International| Solar Water Pump (March 2018)

The installed 5.5kW ground mounted solar array produces 83m3 of water a day (in the  least sunny month of January) from a balancing and sump tank to a final delivery tank over 4 kilometers away. From there, water is distributed to several distribution points in the village of Lumpembe Lwasenga and overflow from the tanks goes to nearby farms.  It is a magical feeling to flick the switch on the pump controller and to see so much water appearing so far away.
