Solar Power Overview PDF Print E-mail
Written by Administrator   
In a globalised world, access to energy in general and electricity in particular is almost taken as a basic human right. It is certainly a vehicle for development. It provides not only the social benefits of improved lighting and communication but also greatly improves productivity through the use of electrical machinery.

However, for many rural people, this is still a dream due for the most part, to the high costs of power line extension to connect remote rural locations to the national grid.
 

But the world is changing. With the development of Solar technology, a new way to supply electricity for rural areas emerged. In recent years, several projects for water pumping, rural electrification, vaccine refrigeration, etc have been carried out nationwide with solar technology as the only source of power. Nowadays it is accepted that solar power represents the only real possibility for many rural areas in developing countries to get sustainable electrification in the foreseeable future, and improve the livelihood of millions of people.
By adopting solar power as a key instrument for achieving economic and social development there will be increased selfreliance,
renewed economic growth, and enhanced employment opportunities. Ultimately, this will alleviate poverty through a balanced and more equitable distribution of income, improved health standards and augmented educational services.
Multisolar Technologies Limited is well prepared to play a pivotal role in the provision of Solar Power for rural electrification,
healthcare and educational institutions, street-lighting, etc. As a well established renewable energy company with valuable
experience and core competence of systems design and integration, Multisolar has the potential to provide turnkey solutions
for electrification of villages and can provide professional services from feasibility and project planning to execution and
beyond.
Based on our experience from previous solar rural electrification projects, our approach in this project will follow a path that
will ensure consultation with all stakeholders right from the onset. Community participation is a pre-requisite to ensuring
equity and sustainability of local infrastructure investments, such as water supply or rural electrification. Thus, the target
communities will form a focal point of the project so that capacity building will be achieved to sustain the new infrastructures
for years to come. Solar modules, the core component of any solar electrification project, have life spans in excess of 25
years. With good systems design therefore, solar installations will give many years of useful service to the communities
