SunErgy succeeded another time to bring electricity and cable TV to a village to improve livelyhoods and start development in the area. The second Solar Power plant in 2019!
Thanks a lot to the team which made this possible.
SunErgy is providing electricity and Cable TV to a new town – Kombe Gare!
In 2015 SunErgy finished its first Solar Power Plant in Bokosso and is able to bring electricity, cable TV and internet to the people in Bokosso.
Please also see what our partner Glava Energy Center reports about the opening in Bokosso:
September 8, 2017 will be a milestone day in the history of Kotto 1; they will have access to electricity, Cable TV and Internet.
Mr. Mike Fohba, Managing Director of SunErgy Cameroon and his 30 member team are working hard and diligently to make a brighter and more prosperous future come through for the people of Kotto 1.
On our visit to Kotto 1 a couple of weeks ago, we were accompanied by a team from HiTV in Buea who made the following report for you to enjoy.
Please spread the good news. Let the world know!
On September 8, 2017 we will switch on electricity in Kotto 1 – the third village in the project.
Work is going full speed ahead with more than twenty people working in the village wiring homes, constructing the solar park and building the grid for electricity, cable TV and Internet.
The excitement and expectation is to be felt as soon as you arrive at the village; the dawn of a new day!
Enclosed are four pictures from Dr. Skjorshammers visit last week, showing young electrician going to wire a home, a home just being wired, pulling a 2.000 meter cable for the grid from the solar power station to the road by hand and pulling 4.000 meter cable constructing the grid using a car. Hard manual work! But then, we are deep into the rainforest. Not very sophisticated, but it works. The rainy season does not make it any easier. Soon September 8 is here and more than 100 years of darkness turns to light! More than 3.000 people will experience pure joy. Waiting is over!
Yesterday, 22.04.2017, we returned from Cameroon from one of the monthly visits.
The main agenda this time was to visit the villages of Bokosso and Kotho 1.
In Bokosso the task was to check that things are in order and running as planned.
In Kotho 1, the next village to have electricity the job was to check status. The work is going full speed ahead with the air vibrating of expectation of things to come. People are volunteering en masse. No shortage of people wanting to help. Young and old, men and women, boys and girls; you name it, they are there!
It is with great pleasure to let you know that a couple of hours ago on 26.11.2016, we switched on the electricity in New Town Bokosso. According to Managing Director of SunErgy Cameroon, Mr. Mike Fohba it works perfect; people are jubilant and ready for a all night celebration! And thinking about it: what a way to start the advent season. Could it be more timely and perfect? Deep in the rainforest, seeing the light for the first time. More than symbolic!
With New Town Bokosso two villages are up and running. Work is under way on the third village: soon they will also see the light. And then, we will roll out, roll out ……… and roll out again, again and again!
The energy miracle is more than a dream; it`s a dream coming true. Eight hundred million people in Sub-Saharan Africa without access to electricity, there is no stopping now!
