Our Offerings are on the way to their new homes

Category : Alternative Energy

Over the last few months, we have been telling you the benefits of solar power. We have shared with you how cost effective and environmentally friendly the offerings are. In that time we have introduced you to RaLiza and Minona.
A lot of you were excited about the opportunity to break your addiction to generators and embracing an exciting and reliable alternative.
We want to thank the early adopters who took the plunge and purchased our offering. We have completed our tests and runs.
There are so many questions that have been asked about Solar as an alternative to generators. We compiled an FAQ on our page to answer some of those questions.
The earliest solar power systems (called solar batteries) were installed by Bell Labs in 1954/1955. And some of them are rumored to still be in operation today.
As you drive down roads in the USA look at the poles and you will see solar panels on them. They are used to power beacons, emergency phones, signs

and many other things. In Nigeria you see them as street lights. Those that have not been vandalized work very well. In Umuikaa Junction, it is the major source of lighting at night.
Please enjoy the pictures of our RaLiza Premium brand brought to you by Atlantic Waste & Power System, Inc.
THANK YOU

Solar Power is on a Roll in Africa

Category : Alternative Energy

There has been so much progress in Solar Power in Africa in the last six months. Rwanda is building an 8.5 MW utility scale solar power plant. Kenya has committed to using Solar to power it’s grid. A German company completed a Solar panel manufacturing facility in Sokoto Nigeria.

The company will power its production facility using solar panels. The panels they manufacture have a unique feature. They work well in the desert heat. Traditional solar panels loose efficiency in very high heat like what you experience in the desert.

South Africa has manufacturing facilities representing some of the largest Solar Power and equipment manufacturers in the world. Both European and Chinese.

Now that the Germans have come to Nigeria and some Chinese manufacturers looking to manufacture in Nigeria, we hope that this is a trend or at least an expectation of things to come.

We will be increasing the prices of our RaLiza Premium power products by 20 to 50% on May 1 2014.

We have been offered office space in Ghana. We will be meeting with our agent next week and hope to expand into Ghana at the beginning of the 3rd quarter of 2014.

The need for an alternative is big in Africa. People in Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Togo and Nigeria desperately need an alternative to generators that would not only put their lives at risk but also bankrupt them. Our RaLiza Premium offerings meet that need. We hope we can encourage other companies to join us in offering Solar Power as an option to our suffering brothers and sisters.

We will be completing 5 installations in Nigeria within the next 50 days. We will post videos and pictures for you to see. Thank you for your support. We hope to keep raising the bar higher.

As we endure the snow, Look at the PV Potential for Nigeria

Category : Alternative Energy

The weather here has me thinking about Nigeria or some place that is very warm. We are waist deep in snow.

Before we share the maps with you, we will share a success story with you. Here is a home in Port Hacourt that has used Solar Power for the last three years. He has no major issues, but the system does not do what it was originally designed to do. He has 1600 Watts in panels a humongous battery bank and a 5 KVA Inverter and 12/24 Controller. He never lets his batteries discharge below 80%, but his panels are not putting back enough juice into his batteries. He uses it to power his lights, TV and Fans. He will like to power his AC. Which is the reason behind the huge battery bank.
We are currently looking over his system and we see a couple of areas that when corrected will improve the performance and allow him to us his AC for a few hours a day.

Here is a picture of the panels on the roof. sesan1

Over 1 million Naira

His system is sort of a hybrid. It is what in Nigeria is referred to as an inverter with a charge controller and panels added. If it had been done correctly it would have yielded him the desired result. He spent N1.2 million on the batteries, N750,000 on the Panels and N350,000 on the Inverter. Do the math that is over N2.2 million. He has saved more than that in fuel already. I did not ask him what it cost for the installation. He has not used a generator in over 3 years.

We were looking at PV Charts and people living in Nigeria have it very good. If you live in Northern Nigeria, your panels are producing at full power for close to 7 hours on average. So there are days it does more. That is just sick. People in the US will salivate to get such through put. In the South and Eastern part it is 2 hours less. Those number are still quite impressive. You can go and look for yourself.

Nigeria should be blanketed in solar panels. All that free energy going to waste.

I hope you enjoyed our most recent posting. Email us with question or visit our catalogue on our page.
