India’s Su-Kam Power Systems expects to begin installing in June the first of 40,000 solar power systems for rural households under a contract from the government, brand manager Kanav Sachdev told African Energy on 7 May. The company was awarded a five-year contract in January worth around $25m to supply, install and service 120W direct current (DC) systems to provide electricity for three lights and a fan per house. The systems, which are manufactured by Su-Kam, and will be installed over a six-month period, comprise a 120W rooftop solar panel, solar charge controller, inverter and a battery charger.
