Sayed Karam Solar PV
Sayed Karam is a community covering 7 separate villages in Gardez, eastern Afghanistan. SESI was contracted by the US State Dept in 2010 to complete a turnkey 100 kWp PV system, including all 20 kV transmission and distribution, pre pay metering and off grid inverter, battery and diesel generator system.
Security in the region is highly dependant on the good will of the community and significant effort went into meeting the local Shura prior to construction commencing so that the SESI team could operate safely and without disruption. The project continues to power the 7 communities of Sayed Karam through 2014.
