Solar & Wind Powered Communications
In 2011, more than 5.6 billion mobile phone users worldwide accounted for about 90 percent of the world population**.
With energy demand and prices on the
rise, maintaining and expanding telecom services presents a challenge
in many rural locations.
Solar & wind energy have proven
to be reliable and economical methods of powering telecommunication
systems in places where a grid supply is unavailable.
Applications include : VSAT, WIMAX,
WiFi Access Points, RF End Points, Antennas, Cellular Repeaters,
Microwave Repeaters and SONET/SDH repeaters.
Distributed WiFi networks are
becoming increasingly popular as a scaleable rural communications
solution. These small systems have small power demands and therefore
are highly cost effective to power from solar pv or wind turbines.
Most high efficiency telecoms
equipment is powered from a 12v, 24v or 48v DC supply, which reduces
conversion losses and improves reliability by eliminating the DC to AC
inverter from the system.
