During the month of September, Alianza Shire – through ZOA, its partner in the refugee camps – held two awareness-raising workshops in Hayda, the host community where the Mai-Aini refugee camp is located.
More than 40 people participated in these workshops, including representatives from the administration, communities and potential users.
Alianza Shire explained what these systems consist of and their power generation capacity. In addition, these workshops aimed to help determine and reach an agreement on criteria for the selection of families as users, as well as the rates to be applied in order to achieve long-term sustainability of solar home systems.
This work will continue in the coming months in order to finalize the key aspects of the model with future users of the project.
