Operational Parameters: This property to the East of Harare runs at around 80% off-grid utilising mains power only for cooking, baking, ironing cloths and dish washing.
The client requested a slow build and the system started off as a simple mains backup system with a 5Kva inverter at its core and 4 simple flooded batterys.
The system is now at the target power range at 3kw array and 400ah (9.6Kwh effective power) battery bank. From this the client runs their fridge and freezer, microwave oven, hot water kettle, booster and borehole pump along with a washing machine twice per week.
Battery Bank: 400ah at 576vdc – PELICAN Tubular – Flooded
Operational Parameters: This Tobacco processing company has installed a combined 120Kw inverter system to provide backup power to multiple areas of the vast factory in the event of a power failure.
The factory roof already has a 100Kw solar array installed providing daytime power via 2 x solar inverters. The new 120Kw system with over 400 x 200Ah tubular batterys will provide back power if required at night.
Major consumers of the power will be lighting along with critical production and safety systems.
Location: Mbire, Kariba and Binga Districts, Zimbabwe
Client: Local NGO
Solar Array: 1Kw RISEN Solar modules (each)
Inverter: 1.2Kva MUST Hybrid inverters
Battery Bank: 400ah at 12vdc – NARADA AGM
Operational Parameters: Over the course of 2018 we have designed and installed solar powered incubators for a local branch of an international NGO in Zimbabwe, under their resilience building program.
The incubators are designed to incubate 500 eggs at a time (21 day period). These form the first part of the NGO’s poultry production efforts. The hope is that the communities will eventually grow to acquire more incubators and so on.
In total 9 (nine) units have been installed under this programme in this first pilot phase that should see more units going into other areas in the near future.
The incubators are powered by a 1Kw solar power system with a 400Ah battery bank. Housed in naturally temperature managed rooms, the power consumption is kept at a sustainable level.
Clamore Solar further provided training to the farmers so as to empower them in the use and maintenance of this new important resource.
