Pro Phalombe is very proud to announce that our solar installation in the hospital is completed. The system was tested and put into operation a few days ago.
It has already experienced a trial by fire – a tree fell on the ESCOM lines near the hospital, so the power was cut off for about 4 days. During this time, the hospital ran almost exclusively off of the solar system. The solar panels provided enough energy to power the hospital through the day, and the batteries lasted well into the night.
