We’re busy commissioning this new solar system for a safari camp in the Okavango Delta. The system will soon be fully operation when the camp opens, but for now the construction team is utilizing the power and we’re using this as a test run to see how the system performs.
All in all, this system will save the company hundred of thousands of Pula in fuel bills. The system will produce enough to handle the daily needs of the camp with a battery capacity to allow a full day of use on limited solar input. There is an automated 80kVA generator on standby for the rainy season (November to March).
We recently upgraded the battery bank at Sango Camp in Khwai. We used a 16kWh 52V (310Ah) Blue Nova lithium ion battery to replace a 900Ah lead acid battery bank. So far, the change has been dramatic, with the batteries getting to a 100% SOC on a daily basis despite cloudy weather – mainly due to the efficiency (96%) of the lithium ion system compared to 70% of a lead acid battery.
We’re making progress on our latest 55kWp solar installation for a safari camp in the Okavango Delta.
We are linking the 55kWp solar array to Fronius 20kVA grid-tied inverters and Victron Quattro units. At the heart of the system is a 195kWh Blue Nova lithium ion battery bank.
What are you doing for World Water Day?
This years theme is “Why wastewater?” – you can download the factsheet here.
We are assisting a local primary school by donating 10 indigenous trees and 1000L of water to help with their current water need for their toilets.

We handed out the 100 solar lanterns last week!! We had people from all over Maun on the day. Unfortunately not all the beneficiaries were able to make the journey, but they will be receiving their lanterns from the Maun Administrative Authority.
Thanks to the Maun Administrative Authority for the assistance to make this drive possible!
I spent the day yesterday in Gaborone with colleagues discussing the future of solar PV and solar hot water standards implementation in Botswana. It was a great privilege to be involved in discussing Botswana’s solar future!
For those who are not yet members of the SIAB (Solar Industries Association of Botswana) I urge to to do so by contacting SIAB on http://www.web.co.bw/siab/membership.html
We’ve just completed a small 1.5kWp solar system for a bush camp in the Okavango Delta.
Because of the forest, we had to place the system a fair distance from the camp and keep the batteries and inverter there too.
