7 healthcare centres in South Sudan are now backed by solar PV systems

Hybrid solar energy systems equipped with photovoltaic (PV) systems, diesel

gensets, standalone solar streetlights and related civil works have been

implemented at seven healthcare centres across South Sudan.


All systems are hybrid, with more than two sources of energy incorporated into the system operation logic. Solar PV generation is dedicated as the first priority,

batteries as the second and genset as the third. However, in sites where the grid is present, this was also integrated into the system’s logic. The scope of the project also extended to integrating the container technical rooms in Juba, of which six had all components assembled, integrated, and tested upon dispatch to the respective sites.


A total solar system of 726.62kWp with a total battery bank storage of 1.677MWH was installed.The seven systems are located in the distinct regions of: Juba at Kator Primary Health Care Center, Alsaba Children’s Hospital and Juba Teaching Hospital; in Lakes State at Rumbek State Hospital; in Eastern Equatoria State at Torit State Hospital; in Warrap State at Kuajok State Hospital; and in the Bahr el Ghazal Region and the Wester Equatoria State at Yambio State Hospital.
