There is a growing awareness of the benefits of solar energy within the community at Chibobo. A small photovoltaic (solar) panel sits on top of the HMP Office roof (at the left end of the building near the aerial), powering a radio. This enables communication between the Office and the vehicle, which can be en route to Serenje for supplies. At Chibobo Basic School, 1km from the Orphanage, there is a configuration of panels on the roof atop the administration room. This can supply power for a computer. A close-up shot shows the inverter and fuses for this power supply. We hope to expand this photovoltaic system in the near future.
