Okatale Combined School Photovoltaic Plant

The Okatale Combined School is located in Ondangwa in the North of Namibia. Considerable problems arise from the lack of adequate power supply. When the Sonnenkinderprojekt became aware of this issue in the summer of 2013, we started to think about how this situation could be improved.

The project “PV-plant Okatale” was launched. In March 2014, the system could officially be handed over to the school. You will find a comprehensive project report here (german). Please find below a few pictures of the installed PV plant:
