Prior to this, neither village had access to power which contributed to the usage of diesel or kerosene for lighting and other energy needs.

This lack of energy led to significantly delayed local development in residential applications (e.g. lights, phone charging, TV), public services (e.g. education, healthcare), service businesses (e.g. shops, restaurants) and productive businesses (e.g. welding, crops processing).

“Electricity gives women like me opportunities to make a contribution to the development of our communities,” said Potfar Hira Mwamlima, a Shitunguru resident.

The REDAVIA minigrid solution includes two solar containers with 89 kWp capacity each, complemented by two integrated lithium–ion energy storage devices (90 kVA / 165 kWh and 60 kVA /138 kWh respectively) to deliver a 24/7 power supply.

REDAVIA has also set up an electricity distribution, metering and mobile payment infrastructure, including 10 km distribution lines each, 1000 energy meters and a paymentsystem to connect households in Isenzanya and Shitunguru.

Alex Katon, Executive Director at InfraCo Africa stated, “InfraCo Africa’s support for REDAVIA’s deployment of containerized solar power in rural Tanzania demonstrates our commitment to investing in innovative businesses to accelerate access to power.”
