For where it has no access to power supply, off-grid solar system is an ideal solution to bring the locals a better live. JinkoSolar, a China-based international solar PV manufacturer, has recently completed delivering 1MW of high efficient PV modules to a telecom provider in Zambia for 150 sites of telecommunication installations.

The solar PV modules were used to build off-grid solar systems and are now offering reliable power supply for the telecom services in the remote places where are not connected with the power grid. The total 150 sets off-grid telecom PV systems consists of JinkoSolar highly efficientsolar modules, charge controller and storage batteries to power the telecom DC loads for 24 hours a day all over the year. The system which is implemented, called ETPS, has been designed by Earth technologies and it includes Jinko High efficient PV panels, generator, batteries, controllers, cabinets and all needed components.

“We are happy to work with Earth Technologies on this milestone solar-based project to power 150 remote telecom stations around Zambia. It helps those stations which used to heavily depend on the diesel generators to avoid the need to regularly transport bulk fuel, and vastly reduced running and O&M cost,” commented by Dany Qian, JinkoSolar Vice President.

With many telecom network sites located in rural, and oftentimes rugged areas such as on mountaintops, desert regions or other isolated areas, where people access is very time & cost consuming or even not possible, so it calls for the solar PV system more efficient, less maintenance need and more reliable to resist extreme environment conditions, therefore to deliver consistent electricity to these base transceiver stations.

The installed PV modules are polycrystalline PV panels that are rain- and dust-persistent. The PID-free, anti-salt, anti-ammonia, anti-acid, static mechanism proof them of operating over 25 years.
