1 MW Solar Power Village Concept

This project aimed to develop a business model, design and implement a replicable 1 MW off-grid/on-grid PV solar power station. After the first pilot plant implementation the plan was to rapidly replicate the model in other similar disadvantageous villages in the country and beyond. The project aimed to apply an innovative partnership model together with local community, a local solar power market player, an international ICT/solar business developer and local clean energy project developer and facilitator. The model builds further on a shared ownership of the plant between the local beneficiary and the project developers.
