Tower Power Stage 1
Phase 1 works to the Power Tower are complete. Sponsored by Citywire, the Power Tower's 6-meter high structure was built from handmade bricks.
While the base has been rendered, a metal louver has been installed for ventilation at high level.
Similarly, on the base of the tower, a louvred steel door has been installed. This will provide ventilation to the batteries and secure access to the equipment once installed.
In the UK, all the electrical equipment has been purchased. It includes PV panels, inverters, deep cycle batteries and all related wiring.
This equipment is expected to be shipped to Malawi for installation, and completion of Stage 2, in May 2015.View the videoView the project
