TRITEC supports autonomous power supply in Madagascar
TRITEC, in co-operation with other sponsors and partners, supports the development of autonomous power supply in Madagascar.
Since May 2010, St. Augustin is Madagascar’s first village that has a completely independent power supply by using the sun and the wind.
In particular, today St. Augustin has two petrol station systems supplying 16 households each (wind energy system and solar panels on the market roof). Approximately 100 households have their own small “Solar Home System”, powering two lamps and a radio. Furthermore, the hospital, two school rooms and a community building now have lights.
