Internet Solar Kiosk

A 20-foot solar kiosk providing satellite internetmobile phone charging and retail services to remote villages. 

Remote Distribution, Monitoring and Billing 

Winch Energy’s mini-grids are best described as a decentralised and autonomous smart power supply, with power generation technology, storage facilities and smart meters, allowing consumers to connect directly to the mini-grid. Power is generated from solar PV panels, stored in batteries and distributed through a localised transmission system to customer’s smart meters. These systems are designed to operate autonomously or can easily be integrated with a centralised grid. As a result, Winch Energy’s mini-grid guarantees a reliable power supply on a 24/7 basis, consumer-orientated production and a localised transmission path to power consumer’s needs.

"The RPU has been specifically designed to overcome challenges associated with balancing demand and generation. It can also accommodate existing diesel generation as a back-up and can be connected to a wind turbine, combining this power generation with the solar array.”
 
– Rino Magazu, Chief Technology Officer

Rapid Deployment Unit

RDU

The RDU is Winch Energy’s alternative to ground-mounted PV plants, which has a rapid deployment function making it suitable for military purpose.
