Sunlabob Renewable Energy Ltd., the venture-backed company specializing in decentralized renewable energy and clean water solutions, recently finalized the turnkey implementation of eleven solar-powered mini-grids in remote communities of Myanmar.
The mini-grids, funded by the Government of Japan, are providing reliable, clean electricity to nearly 1,000 households in eleven villages throughout Shan State and Chin State, Myanmar.
The project is under the guidance of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar’s Department of Rural Development of the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Irrigation.
Andy Schroeter, Sunlabob CEO, stated: “Sunlabob is pleased to demonstrate that high-quality, international-standard solar expertise and technology has an important role to play in Myanmar.
“Decentralized renewable energy, whether providing first-time energy access to rural communities, or offering on- and off-grid businesses a reliable, affordable and cleaner electricity supply, is a key component to the country’s development,” added Schroeter.
