Solar energy powers telecommunication infrastructure

IHS Africa powers telecommunication infrastructure with solar energy.

IHS Africa is one of the biggest telecommunications infrastructure of Africa.

The company has recently unveiled the largest solar-powered cell site in Africa.

This is an attempt to reduce diesel consumption at least 40% to 50%.

Only in West Africa, HIS Africa have 4,000 generator powered cellular communications towers.

Most telecommunication towers are located off-grid and powering these with electricity makes it all easier.

This solar powered system could prove to be a boon to rural mobile-phone users.
