Today ICM, InfraCo Asia, EDF and local partner SolaRiseSys, held a groundbreaking ceremony at the site of the future Kha Laing Microgrid in Magwe, Myanmar, in the presence of the Chief-Minister of the Magwe Regional Government, H. E. Aung Moe Nyo and the Ambassador of France to Myanmar, H.E. Christian Lechervy.
This is the first of two planned pilots. It entails the construction of an approximately 43kW hybrid solar-diesel microgrid with battery storage components which, when in operation, is expected to give first-time, 24/7 access to clean energy to 276 households or 1,100 people who currently rely on the burning of fuel or firewood. If successful, the pilots will be scaled up across a targeted 200 sites in rural Myanmar.
We are now excited to explore opportunities for additional productive end use of electricity with interested businesses. Feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
