Plant for growth
Situated at the foot of the Livingstone Mountains on the Kisongo River, the off-grid hydroelectric plant is owned and managed by community-based village committees. It currently meets an output demand of up to 150 kW / hour. All funds raised from the electricity sold, are used to cover running and maintenance costs. Making it a truly financially sustainable solution.
Thanks to this new power supply, the region’s medical dispensaries now have electricity to store medicines in refrigerators, schools can open for evening classes to ensure everyone the right to education, mills can grind the corn and flour with electric motors instead of fuel, and shops can stay open into the evening.
