Communication is the most valuable tool in the world today. With digital and technological trends, information travels thousands of miles per millisecond, helping individuals, businesses, and world economies benefit from the real-time connection, turning the world into a global village.
High operating expenses of running diesel generators for Nigerian businesses including telecom towers are not sustainable, it has led several businesses down the rabbit hole. Backup power generation on average in the country runs for about 12 hours daily, 24 hours continuous run hours daily for more than 30,000 telecom towers across Nigeria. translates to a continuous carbon emission to the atmosphere. An off-grid site consumes nearly 13,000 liters of diesel every year and adds nearly 35 metric tons of CO2 emissions to the environment. The IEA’s Global Energy Review 2021 estimates that CO2 emissions will increase by almost 5% this year to 33 billion tonnes.
“There is no gainsaying that Arnergy is at the forefront of decarbonising Africa. The rollout of 2nd and 3rd generation cell towers saw several metric tons of carbon emitted into the atmosphere in Africa. We have been very intentional in bringing to market zero-carbon off-grid solar products that would power 5G and rural towers thereby connecting the next billion sustainably.” – Femi Adeyemo, CEO, Arnergy.
Due to Africa’s tremendous solar energy resources, there is significant solar irradiation to generate enough energy to power rural telecom towers entirely on off-grid Solar. Rural Base is a ground/pole mount system developed in-house by Arnergy, with the sole mission to effectively address the energy needs of electronic communication devices deployed to remote areas across the country in a very cost and energy-efficient manner.
Solar PV + lithium batteries are a more affordable substitute to fossil fuels and do not negatively impact the environment, operating expenses and frequency of maintenance visit is reduced to the barest minimum With RuralBase, Arnergy has edged the supply chain risk and operational risk for African Rural TOWERCOs and MNOs whose rollout plan had seen series of delay due to supply chain induced elongated transshipment and incessant cases of equipment being sourced from different countries.
