Mercy Hospital contracted the Sierra Leonean company Maklon Limited to supply and install 40 solar panels and all necessary peripherals to provide solar power as a sustainable means of generating electricity to meet the power demands of the hospital.
Maklon completed the installation and carried out two days of testing to confirm that the system is functioning properly, adding two solar panels to accommodate more power for the rainy season. After three days of testing, the system is fully operational and accommodates all computers, lights, the submersive pump, and two air conditioners. With solar power, there will be 24 hours of electricity to power the blood bank, the surgical centre, and all of Mercy's electrical needs.
