EKOCENTER powered by SOLARKIOSK in Ghana
The EKOCENTER powered by SOLARKIOSK project in Ghana is officially inaugurating the first cluster of 5 units in 2014. The initial inauguration took place in the village of Berekuso, which is about 10km north of Accra’s urban reach. Like most of Ghana, Berekuso experiences frequent power cuts on a daily basis and relies on unsustainable energy sources for power back-up.
In 2015, a further 20 EKOCENTERS will be installed throughout the country and the SOLARKIOSK Ghana subsidiary will be the first to introduce a variety of solar lighting products and solar home systems across the region. Furthermore, various Ekocenters will be equipped with a water purification system. Photos and stories from Ghana will be coming up very soon!
