Abstract

There is little or no electricity available in the informal settlements, which contributes to a poor quality of life. The goal of our project was to provide information on solar energy options to the Township of Okahandja that would meet the needs of the residents of the informally settled areas. Several options were researched, but national grid electricity was found to be the best option. In addition, we provided recommendations concerning any future energy projects in the settlement.
