Today is World Environment Day and we want to celebrate it with great news: in Bangui we have finished installing the new photovoltaic system and, since a couple of days, the activities are carried out with solar power.
After Malawi, Guinea, Tanzania, Kenya and Rep. Dem. After Malawi, Guinea, Tanzania, Kenya and the Democratic Republic of Congo, the DREAM centre in the Central African Republic has now also been equipped with a first significant solar energy installation.
Thanks to the photovoltaic (PV) system, the healthcare activities carried out in the DREAM clinique are self-sufficient and the electricity supply is stable and secure.
In addition, the sensitive equipment and the systems for storing life-saving medicines and vaccines are protected from power surges and continuous blackouts.
The PV system, built with the contribution of SEVA for Africa, allows us to continue to reduce the ecological footprint of Dream’s activities by continuing to de-carbonise our operations and immediately reducing the use of diesel generators.
This new plant will help to make a significant impact in reducing the use of energy from non-renewable sources.
