ZimSolar Alternative Energy Systems for Rural Communities
Click image for close-up
ZimSolar are committed to supporting NGO or government sponsored projects that use renewable alternative energy sources to improve the lives of people who live in the rural areas of the SADC region of Southern Africa. We supply and install solar systems in rural locations where the national electricity grid is either non-existent, or too far or too costly to implement. This includes rural homes, rural health clinics, rural schools, rural community centres and rural business centres or growth points.
Our professionally designed and installed systems have a lasting and sustainable impact on the livelihoods of rural people by providing a renewable source of energy that is essential to improving the health, education, income generation and communication facilities available to rural communities.
The systems provide electric energy for lighting; vaccine refrigerators; borehole and deep well pumps that supply dependable and safe water for drinking and for small scale irrigation; audio-visual appliances for health education programmes (e.g. projectors, LCD screens); communication (e.g. cell phones, radios, computers) and recreation and entertainment (e.g. television ). All systems include:
Installation and commissioning (included)
End-User Training (included)
Theft deterrent fasteners and security appliances (optional)
Post-Installation Support and Maintenance (optional)
If a clean, safe and dependable water supply is required for drinking, sanitation or for clinic services, then the above solar electricity generators can be combined with the ZimSolar SolarPump systems to pump water from boreholes or deep wells (see below)
