The Community is off the national grid with residents relying mainly on diesel/petrol powered generators for their energy needs leaving streets and public infrastructure without electricity.

Solution

The social impact project seeks to light up the streets in Tarkwa Bay community and the Health Centre using photovotaic (solar) system. Residents of the community stays indoors immediately it is nightfall to avoid incidents of criminal assault especially rape and sexual harassment. Also, the only community health care center is without electricity to treat its patients.

Considering the health (noise and air pollution) hazards associated with using generators, the project will enhance the mental health and well being of residents. I will also facilitate economic development activities in the community which has been largely affected by lack of electric power supply.
