We installed our 17kW and 30kW RPU's in Nimjat, Mauritania, in 2016. Nimjat has a population of around 1,500 people and our RPUs provide electricity through a mini-grid to the local school, the dispensary, the mosque, 70 houses and streetlights. We provide Wi-Fi access, DSTV and electric water pumping. The village leadership informed us that now, for the first time in about 100 years, they are expecting substantial migration back to the village.
