Disseminating solar energy in far west villages in DRC. (Luc/GENDRC)
Create a partnership network for solar kits, ensure supply. Ensure that transport is possible, if not also create partnerships for transport in this direction. Identify the beneficiary villages. Identify people to train, for stability, women. Train women leaders per village. Create microcredits around the solar project to support sustainability. Install kits with persons empowered.
Solar tunnel drier

Solar tunnel drier

Using solar energy and green technology
Solar drying has been practised for conservation of foods for centuries and is particularly apt for production of high-quality products in agricultural enterprises. The appropriate construction guarantees easy installation as well as transportation. Without any reconstruction the dryer is suitabe for fruits, vegetables, spices and medical plants. Even under adverse weather conditions the operation of the dryer is reliable. Seasonal overproduction as well as over- and undersizes are processed to valuable goods. The applicants of solar tunnel dryers are agricultural enterprises, familiy run farms and developing organisations which demonstrate improved technology. With good results the dryer was also operated by women groups in developing countries to contribute to familiar income. Also an increasing number of organic farmers use the ecological advantages of the solar tunnel dryer for the production of their high-value crops
Using Renewable Energy

Using Renewable Energy

Building a stand-alone PV / Solar Home System with inverter and DC loads
A small system consists of 6 components: The (the) solar module (s) A, the charging controller B, the (the) battery (s) C, the inverter D when AC power is required, the AC loads F and DC consumers, such as 12 V energy-saving lamps.Please note that sufficient cable cross-sections in order to avoid losses. Two cables (+/-) lead from the solar modules A to the charge controller B. The charge regulator should be at least 10% higher dimensions than the maximum current of the modules is. Another two cable lead from the charge regulator (+/-) to the solar battery and to consumers. The battery cable and the cables to the loads should be secured with automotive fuses. Also on the battery, the inverter is connected. Again, you should provide an appropriately sized fuse in the line, as a reverse polarity of the DC connections cause irreversible damage to the unit. The inverter must never be connected to the charge controller, since it could lead to the destruction of the regulator.
