Pilot System Updates!
Pilot installations were also assessed during the STG team visit to Lesotho. Due to problems with vandalism, the Bethel High School installation was disassembled and donated to partner organization BBCDC for use in their Solar Energy course curriculum. The installation at Ha Teboho village has weathered more than 18 months in the field without problem, however theft of the system batteries is currently preventing the system from being fully functional. The team is working on an upgrade to the Ha Teboho system, along with the development of a security plan in cooperation with the villagers of Ha Teboho, and we hope to have this system back online sometime in 2009.
