Wind power comes to Zeze!

This summer we have been working with the Local Electricity Project to deliver workshops to enable young people in Zeze to make their own wind turbines. 

The workshopgave them the tools to seek out new solutions to the problem of access to electricity, whilst utilising local materials and knowledge. Each participant was supported to determine which local materials and skills can be used to build a wind turbine, able to provide 20W of power, enough to charge 2 mobile phones and power two 5W LED lights.

We  have previously set up a carpentry and welding workshop aimed at improving the skills of Zeze residents. This latest workshop  helped  to boost electricity usage in Zeze, a village 41 km from grid electricity and where only a small number of the population have access to solar.

By utilising local resources and skills, the workshop reduced the cost of electricity whilst also providing opportunities for entrepreneurship and further education.

Everyone who participated learnt many new skills about carpentry and welding, as well as produced a functioning wind turbine. 

It was a great success!
