Solar systems installed
With the help from WWF-International solar energy expert Jean-Philippe Denruyter, technicians of the Salonga National Park Team installed three solar systems to supply staff housing and the guest quarters with electricity. Along with the installation a set of trainings and diagnostics were conducted to better understand the electricity needs in the park’s headquarters, ranger stations and patrol posts. Now the infrastructure team has a clear understanding of the electricity needs and how to satisfy them with appropriate and lasting solar systems.
