The communities of Séro and Mélo were each electrified with an Amali Solartainer® in August and September 2018. The electrification of the neighbouring village of Diadioumbéra took place in January 2019. With access to sustainable electricity, many small entrepreneurs in the three communities were able to drive their businesses forward and generate more profit, which led to a rapidly increasing demand for electricity. Therefore, in February 2021, the three Amali Solartainers were replaced with a 152 kWp ground-mounted PV system including a containerised 270 kWh lithium-ion battery storage system. Through a 7.3 km medium-voltage grid, this plant in Séro now also supplies the neighbouring villages of Mélo and Diadioumbéra with solar power. It is the first ImpactSite to empower an entire network of villages.
The three Amali Solartainers that became available have been supplying the communities of Gory Gopela, Ngana and Serentay with solar power since 2022. This is where the mobile design of the Amali Solartainers shows its strengths.
