Hospitals are in an energy intensive industry compared to other businesses. There is a need to maintain lifesaving equipments critical for patient survival. Hence constant power supply is of utmost importance for hospitals.
But there are problems confronting energy production in Zambia, the demand for energy is rising everyday and so are the energy costs. Chongwe District Hospital was one of the selected pilot project under UNDP Solar4Health where Ndkay Zambia working as a local representative was enaged to provide installation and aftersales support. This Solar Energy solution provides efficient delivery of healthcare by the hospitals.
Our Solar for Hospitals solutions now contributes to extended hours of operation, and better retention and recruitment of healthcare workers at Chongwe District Hospital, ensuring effective, safe healthcare, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
With this success, patients are no longer required to keep candles, equally, health care staff are no longer using their phone torchlights when operating at night.
