Cambodia: A photovoltaic plant at the PSE Centre

Objective: Solar panels to improve electricity self-sufficiency for a vocational centre welcoming 1,500 scavenger children

  • Status

    Project completed

  • Location Phnom Penh

Pour un sourire d'enfant (PSE) launched a boarding school to welcome 1,500 scavenger children in the area of Stung Mean Chay, Cambodia. 

Due to frequent electricity shortages and the high cost of energy, the Alstom Foundation funded the installation of solar panels covering 240 m2 of the roof - generating 35.4 kW of electricity.

The centre will save $9,200 per year in electricity costs, thanks to this installation.
