Project Lira Energy

Solar Power for AYINET’s new office

 

Ugandan NGO AYINET is finishing construction works of the new site. Structural foundations are made for the future. The site measures 100 to 50 meters and includes 5 separate infrastructures (offices and meeting rooms, reception, server room, facilities as showers and coffee corner, energy space for solar production and batteries etc). The teams moved in early this year but are facing severe operational challenges due to frequent power outages. The solution is definitely increased energy self-sufficiency. Besides for own operations, it is of fundamental importance to assure stable and reliable energy supply as AYINET is developing a community center with ICT hubs and learning space. Computers, kitchen appliances, etc will all work on renewable, auto-produced solar energy.
