Cambodia: A photovoltaic plant at the PSE Centre

Objective: Solar panels improving electricity self-sufficiency for a vocational center welcoming 1,500 scavenger children.

PSE launched a boarding school to welcome 1,500 scavenger children in the area of Stung Mean Chay. 

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

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