A new mini-grid model is set to deliver a stable and low carbon electricity provision to the previously unconnected village of Mthembanji, Dedza District, in Malawi.
This mini-grid will be the first-time experience of wired household electricity and has the potential for significant social and economic impact in the village.
Following COVID-19 related delays, commissioning and final testing of the first Sustain Compact containerised solar generation unit took place in July 2020. This mini-grid unit is delivered under the Rural EASE (Energy Access through Social Enterprise and Decentralisation) project.
Rural EASE is funded by the Scottish Government in collaboration with the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow and United Purpose, an international development and emergency relief organisation headquartered in the UK.
