Sunlabob launches largest-ever solar project in Cambodia
- Published on Monday, 30 January 2012
From Nov till Dec 2011, Sunlabob, in collaboration with a local partner in Cambodia, successfully supplied and installed 3900 Solar Home Systems to 28 villages across Cambodia.
The project, to install 12,000 Solar Home Systems across more than 400 villages in Cambodia by 2012, is Cambodia’s biggest solar power initiative to date and the result of a World Bank financed contract that Sunlabob had won in Mar 2011.
Though a large installation, the project still leaves almost 40 per cent of the nation off the electricity grid, but officials say the solar project is a way to reach these areas.
Compared to its neigbours, Cambodia’s solar-energy potential is huge as there are few other alternative energy options.
