The project used this award to co-finance the pilot phase. The 6 months in the field helped Solarly to better understand the most urgent energy needs, particularly in the education sector. The 40 prototypes were installed which now provide energy to a school and families without access to electricity, but also to an ecovillage that serves as an informative centre.
