Power for Remote and Rural Communities
Firefly sustainable Microgrid Power Systems, are suitable to provide permanent power to rural and remote communities who do not have any access to mains infrastructure. Our Microgrid system is low maintenance, engineered to an exceptionally high standard, affordable, clean and safe.
Where there is poor, limited or no access to electricity, the Microgrid provides the solution. A Microgrid can replace inefficient, expensive and polluting fuels like diesel and kerosene, whilst also providing reliable power.
To achieve universal electricity access by 2030, it is estimated that 40% of new capacity will need to be provided by Mini Grids (WEO 2010).
The bitHarvester platform makes the installation of a Microgrid a viable long term financial proposition. By incorporating access:energy’s bitHarvester technology, Microgrid energy users can pay for the energy they use with a mobile phone. Firefly’s power generation hardware with access:energy’s power management and payment systems is a sustainable business model for a long-term energy supply.
We actively engage with rural communities to provide training which enables them to operate and maintain their own sustainable power systems. The system is resilient and permanent, yet engineered to be effectively and easily integrated with a main grid power network in the future. No matter where a community without electricity may be in the world, our Microgrid systems can be relied upon to deliver the power that meets their needs.
