Happenings At Susteffa
SUSTEFFA Green Fish Farm Villages
This project is a symbiosis for fisheries, agriculture and environmental development using solar energy production which will be highly beneficial to such communities.
Regionally used energies, produced from self sufficient resources, not only allow liberation from constant power failures especially to the poorest and most sun- intensive areas of Africa.
These villages will generate their own power and left over energies can be sold to other areas around.
SEFFA will partner with relevant organizations to build pilot green fishing villages and fish farm villages. In discussion with AfDB. We seek for collaboration with development partners to give power to local communities that are not on the national grid.
They will be enabled to use solar power to power fish farms and irrigate farms for all year round farming with the establishment of Solar Mini Grids
