Solar Containers in 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 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 store, supply electricity for 20 eurocents per kilowatt hour (kWh). Until now, villagers had to pay up to 1.50 euros per kWh of electricity, which came from diesel generators - or they had no electricity at all. Tesvolt storage systems can be used worldwide in demanding environments and have a long service life thanks to the Active Battery Optimizer developed by Tesvolt.
