Description

This guide is for organizations who operate in humanitarian contexts with limited or no access to reliable and affordable grid electricity, and that rely on diesel generators to power their offices, staff housing and other facilities. Transitioning to solar energy could deliver significant benefits, but can involve complex management and procurement processes. Operating solar systems also requires technical skills that many organizations don’t have in-house.
