Project Characteristics and Results
Inovative Financial Mechanisms
Agreat benefit of such an alternative energy source, is that the system is almost maintenance free. If panels are kept clean and no parts of system are broken the unit should have a life of around 25 years. Money is saved from regular payments from the villages so that when the time comes to replace batteries. the money is already available.
Notable Community Participation
