MUNICH & DAR ES SALAAM, Tanzania-Thursday, October 26th 2017 [ AETOS Wire ]

(BUSINESS WIRE)--REDAVIA, a global market leader of cost-effective, reliable rental solar power for businesses and communities, commissioned two minigrids in Isenzanya and Shitunguru, located in the Songwe region in western Tanzania. The two pioneering containers were financed by InfraCo Africa (part of PIDG).

Previously, both villages didn’t have access to power - a common situation in Tanzania with low electrification rates, leading to the usage of diesel or kerosene for lighting and other energy needs. This lack of energy led to delayed local development for residential applications (e.g. lights, 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,” sa ... Read more »
