BPC LESEDI Rural electrification with individual solar kits, Botswana Webdoc Africa Express
In Botswana, we meet Tanguy working at BPC Lesedi, a company that develops solutions for rural electrification with individual photovoltaic kits. BPC Lesedi is a jointventure between BPC, which is Botswana's national electricity operator, and EDF the French national operator. It is a quite original concept as Botswanese people are offered to invest in a franchise and then they set it up in their village. Beyond the franchise system, the business model is based on the energy compensation the customers do not pay for the product, but for the maintenance of their equipment.
We have just arrived at Domboshaba Lodge, a small hotel somewhere in Botswanese countryside. It took us 5 or 6 hours from Gaborone to get here. We are going to focus on the electrical installations of this lodge as they are only solar installations set up by BPC Lesedi. Here, we are in a standard room which includes an individual solar system. You can see three battery boxes with the controller system here, which shows the battery level, or if the panel is running well for example. Here is a small inverter.
