Sunlabob installs 18.2kW grid- connected solar photovoltaic system in Savannakhet, Lao PDR

2018 01 Solar Grid

In December 2017, Sunlabob completed the installation of a 18.2kW grid-connected solar photovoltaic system for a non-governmental organization called Sengsavang located in Savannakhet Province, South of Laos.

Sengsavang contracted Sunlabob for a turn-key package of engineering design, procurement, installation, commission and post-sales maintenance. The grid-connect solar PV system was an ideal solution for Sengsavang with lower upfront cost than a system with battery bank (energy storage). The energy harvested will be consumed by Sengsavang themselves, reducing the monthly electricity bill and overall, reduce its environmental footprint.

“Given the long association that Sunlabob has with Sengsavang, we are proud to have installed a grid-connect solar system that will bring in ongoing cost-savings to this great organization” said Daophet Vongsakhamhoui, Head of Community Development, Sunlabob.

About Sengsavang: It’s a non-governmental organization that provides protection and assistance to victims and girls at risk of human trafficking and sexual exploitation in Laos. Additionally, Sengsavang offers education, job skills development and micro-business starter kits to support a sustainable community reintegration to the victims.
