In February 2021 we completed the solar + storage system, which now enables a ‘next level’ of medical care to the rural area of Golomoti (Malawi). Read Doctor Frank’s inspiring story here and find out more about this project below.
about the clinic
The clinic, located in Golomoti, in Malawi, provides basic medical services. These include Malaria, HIV and Bilharzia testing and education, post/ante-natal care, vaccinations and immunization, family planning and sexual health education and basic first aid. Currently, on average 800 people receive treatment, medication or consultation at the clinic every month. Electrification enables the clinic to further develop the services it provides.
The installation consists of a photovoltaic solar (3 kWp) and lithium battery storage (5kWh) system. The square in front of the clinic is illuminated by three freestanding solar lights.
costs & financing
The total costs for the system (components, labor, transport, taxes) totaled to approximately €9.000. The largest cost component is the battery, which accounts for approximately 30% of total costs.
The crowdfunding campaign has been concluded successfully thanks to 26 individuals donors, in combination with budget provided by our partners.
