Remote electrification in Benin with photovoltaics

VP Solar supplied many photovoltaics plants for electrification in Benin, West Africa.

Experience for complete off-grid application in Benin

The plants were composed of all components needed for a complete off-grid application:

  • Modules
  • Inverters
  • Batteries
  • Chargers and regulators
  • Mounting and cabling systems

The projects required an high level design support in order to configure the plants at best and to optimize them accordingly to the use and the local conditions.

VP Solar engineers have a long-term experience, working from 1999 at off-grid configurations and supplying.

The plants are developed to supply energy in small remote villages, with a power from 30 to 100 PV kWp, and a battery capacity from 15.000 to 30.000 Ah.

Generating green energy in Africa

This green approach of generating energy is growing in Africa, for many reasons:

  • Photovoltaics current prices are very competitive compared with oil traditional sources
  • PV energy is produced in the place where it is consumed, with no costs for transmission and distribution
  • With renewable energy you can limit pollution and gas emissions

Photovoltaics technology is particularly suitable for remote places and agriculture applications, providing green and competitive energy.

The payback time is becoming shorter thanks to the decreasing prices of all components: PV modules, inverters and batteries.

VP Solar engineering team can support resellers and installers to choose the components and to configures them in the best way.
