Electrification of the Mpale village – 730 households, several businesses and community buildings in the remote village of Mpale now use a hybrid solar minigrid for their electricity supply. The minigrid was installed by Studer Innotec SA. It has a PV generation of 48 kWp with OPzS battery storage and a 50kVA diesel generator as back-up. The electricity generated by the PV system is distributed through a 2 km long aerial line installed in the village and finally delivered to the population through a service-based tariff scheme.
