Solar power boost
Posted on August 7, 2013
Fitted yesterday to our slum-based school... ten additional solar panels, giving us 11 in all. This will make a big difference – we will no longer be dependent on hopelessly-intermittent mains electricity and our one original panel – so huge thanks to EY's first Young Philanthropy syndicate, which sponsored the panels, supported by a Ugandan government grant.
Now, solar power will provide lighting throughout the whole school (including external security lights); plus enough for our new IT suite and admin laptops, printer, photocopier, TV, video and charging various mobile phones... luxury!
