Video Update: Dream of First Solar-Powered High School in Africa becomes a Reality
In a previous blog post, we introduced Sioma High School, located in Western Zambia, Africa. The school, which houses more than 600 students each semester, was powered by three dirty, noisy and inefficient diesel generators that cost about $26,000 in fuel per year. However, that all changed when the non-profit organization Empowered by Light created a healthier learning environment for the students by outfitting the school with a 24-kilowatt solar microgrid and battery storage system.
See how this incredible project became a reality and how Sioma High School students are benefiting from consistent electricity in the video above.
