TellCo Europe launches off-grid solar power system
In promotion of clean and efficient energy usage in Nigeria, TellCo Europe Nigeria, a renewable and clean energy solution firm, has launched a mono-crystalline (mono) off-grid solar power system, taking to cognisance the nation’s weather system.
The company aims to bridge the power challenges experienced by mostly Micro/Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) in the country with its TellCoSol off-grid solar power system. It said mono solar technology unlike the polycrystalline (poly) allows the system to function well without necessarily using sunrays but just a clear weather can get it to function.
Speaking in Lagos at the green conference, tagged, “Climate Opportunities and Green Entrepreneurship,” the Founder of Tellco Europe, Rudolf Fiedle, said apart from solving the energy problem in Nigeria of free clean energy from the sun, they also want to diversify away from oil and gas.
According to him, the price of solar in the last few years has gone down by at least factor of three to four, making solar energy products more affordable and economical to use.
Expressing concern about the rate of adoption of solar use in Nigeria, Fiedle noted that other solar technologies with one or two moods can’t stand the raining season, which doesn’t necessarily work for the Nigerian clime there by discouraging people to key into the technology.
“We have designed the system according to the Nigerian circumstances on dynamics of the sun, and also factored in the worst modes of weather in the country,” he said
The Chairman, Tellco Europe-Nigeria, Prof. Wale Omole, expatiating on the specification and varying capacities of the TellCoSol home system, remarked that the lowest capacity is 50 watts, and the highest is 12000 watts, which come in the same outlook.
Omole, reiterating the importance of electric power being the heartbeat of an economy, said without power, there can’t be passion to produce.
