These off-grid systems are intended for families living on the islands in Halong Bay. Ten stand-alone systems have been transported to the island of Quan Lan (Van Don District), located 30 kilometers from the coast of Northern Vietnam in Halong Bay.
The first ten PV systems are pre-assembled and only the modules, the solar regulator and the storage batteries need to be connected for commissioning. The remaining solar modules will be put together for 90 off-grid systems onsite and will be forwarded to communities on other small islands in the region.
In order to spread the arrays and facilitate the organization onsite, the GÖDE-Foundation is working in collaboration with the Vietnamese Institute of Agricultural Engineering and Post Harvest Technology (IAEPHT, Vietnam).
