Algeria Energy: Photovoltaics for isolated villages   Leave a comment

Photovoltaic energy in Algeria – The area of ​​territory and remoteness of some villages of any communication network led the government to consider specific solutions to provide energy and especially electricity to the citizens who live in remote villages, particularly in the Deep South.

To enable people living in isolated villages in the south of the country, access to energy, including electricity, the government entrusted the company to provide public Sonelgaz twenty villages of solar equipment.

It was in 1998. These villages are isolated and far from any communication network may have, thanks to photovoltaic solar energy available. Photovoltaic solar energy is expected to contribute further to provide energy to isolated and remote areas of communication networks in the national renewable energy from 2011 to 2030. For rural electrification, solar power with wind power is an irreplaceable means. In addition, this method has the advantage of producing clean energy.

The solar electrification in 18 villages in the Southern Ocean has affected 1000 households in the provinces of Tindouf with three common, with two Adrar, Illizi with one and with four common Tamanrasset. An operation that began in 1998, and whose financing was carried out on state grants. The power of these villages by conventional means, such as diesel or conventional electrical grids, would have resulted in excessive costs and would have posed the problem of fuel transportation.

In addition, the low density of the territory would have meant a huge cost for energy produced in addition to the difficulty in carrying out the work or maintenance. People’s needs are primarily oriented towards the light, refrigeration, water pumping, fan, television and radio. A new program will affect other remote villages. This time the village will feature individual sets of 1 kW to 1.5 kW per household. Villages of the Deep South and Central Highlands are involved in the wilaya of Illizi, Tamanrasset, M’sila, El Oued, Ghardaia, Batna, Tebessa, Tlemcen, Saida, Sidi Bel Abbes, El Bayadh, Tissemsilt and Naam.
