MIET AFRICA requires a service provider to supply and install a modular upgradeable solar system to 10 FutureLife-Now! schools in Zambia. An increase in economic activity has led to an increased energy demand in the country which has resulted in nationwide load shedding schedules which last up to 12 hours a day. To mitigate the effects and to ensure learning continues, the FutureLife-Now! programme will provide support to the 10 FutureLife-Now! schools in Zambia by supplying and installing solar systems.
