Tubman University Solar
Tubman University Solar - Liberia, West Africa
BITHENERGY is currently helping Tubman University in Liberia, West Africa, identify cost-competitive renewable energy sources and strategies to tap into its immense renewable energy potential in solar, wind, hydropower and biomass technologies. The lack of a utility grid in Liberia means the University doesn’t have access to reliable, cheap power. Tubman has been powered by generators and spends a large amount of money on diesel fuel.
With the climate in Liberia ideal for using renewable technologies, Tubman has embarked on a complete Renewable Energy Master Plan (REMP) in its effort to become a leader in renewable energy and reduce dependence on electricity. For Phase One, BITHENERGY developed, designed and constructed a solar photovoltaic (PV) system at the homes of the president and vice-president and installed solar lighting and a wind turbine on the campus. Three more phases are planned as follows:
- Phase I (completed) - Solar lighting, solar PV at homes of president & vice-president; solar PV & wind energy at administration building
- Phase II - Solar PV for the academic building, student dorms and the cafeteria
- Phase III - Other potential projects at Tubman University include a centralized community solar array & biomass plant
BITHENERGY is currently developing, designing and constructing the remaining two phases. We are excited to help Tubman University become a leader in renewable energy.
