Promoting Solar Products and Services

 

Many solar products were carried to the road shows

“Very good quality!”, “You can even charge your phone!”, “The time for buying batteries is over!” were some of the points made by the sales agents who supported the two Road Shows in Buchanan, Grand Bassa and Margibi, Bong and Nimba County, both dated December 2016.

GIZ/EnDev (Energizing Development) works towards sustainable access to modern energy services (solar energy and improved cooking stoves). In the cocoa sector, GIZ/EnDev collaborates with local cooperatives, NGOs and the private sector to promote solar dryers, solar lamps and supporting mobile data collection and certification efforts.

 

In Totota, Bong county, the Liberian owned Liberia Engineering and Geo Technology Company has started operating a PV 25 KW mini solar plant that provides electricity to about 40 households and businesses. It is backed up by a diesel generator that charges the battery if the sunshine has not been strong enough.
