Solar Containers in Mali - Energy for 250,000 People

Solar Containers, Mali

In cooperation with the start-up Africa GreenTec, TESVOLT is supplying lithium storage systems for 50 solar containers with a total capacity of 3 megawatt hours (MWh), enabling a reliable power supply for 25 villages in Mali.

The 40-foot containers, each with a 37 to 45-kWp photovoltaic system and a 60-kWh battery storage system, supply electricity for EUR 0.20 per kilowatt hour (kWh). Until now, villagers had to pay up to EUR 1.50 per kWh of electricity, which came from diesel generators – or face having no electricity at all. TESVOLT storage systems can be used worldwide, even in demanding environments, and have a long lifespan thanks to the Active Battery Optimizer developed by TESVOLT.
