This operation (furniture and installation) have been financed by the franco-namibian company InnoSun, specialised in renewable energy.
This action is in line with the promotion of sustainable development and renewable energies supported by the French government. With a peak capacity of 5kW, those panels will provide almost 50% of the Residence total electricity consumption.
The two next steps are:
Full coverage of the energy requirements ;
Installation of an electric vehicule battery which would replace the power generator in case of power outage (48h autonomy) according to the Vehicule to Grid concept.
