Highlighting Off-Grid Projects in Senegal
November 5, 2016
As off-grid solar booms in East Africa, seven villages in Western African nation Senegal are preparing to start benefiting from off-grid solar solutions, as non-profit organization Solar Village Project begins preparations to install solar arrays within the communities.
Nowhere in the world is off-grid solar finding a more suitable home than Africa, where huge areas of the continent lack access to electricity. A number of companies have been developing the market in East Africa, but now Senegal is getting in on the act, as non-profit organization Solar Village Project begins developing off-grid arrays for seven Senegalese villages.
Solar Village Project is an organization that is installing solar arrays in Senegal and India, to provide electricity to areas that previously had no access to it. It’s most recent undertaking is for the installation of off-grid solar systems in seven Senegalese villages in the Sahel and Littoral regions.
