The first project launched by TanzSolar, this test village has 46 homes with multi-room solar lighting packages. These systems are being monitored and serviced since 2007.
In 2007 TanzSolar initiated a Test Village where our staff installed solar-powered lighting systems in each of 45 homes in the Irienyi Village. These systems included 10 Watt solar panels mounted on the roof, batteries and LED lights. We have returned to upgrade and maintain these systems. The lights were upgraded to brighter bulbs and most of the batteries have been replaces with larger batteries. These systems were wired throughout the house with switches, which have been replaces as they break. The villagers are very happy with these solar lighting systems.
