Due to the fire outbreak in one of the Fuel Filling Station in my environment, it destroyed the transmission line supplying electricity to my zone.
As a result of this, we have been in my area for the past two weeks without electricity and this has become a major problem to all the people living close, worse yet it has affected me in my activities as a steemians who is always active.
The information reaching us from the Power Holding Company who supplies electricity in my zone is that it could take months before electricity is fixed here, the month for fixing remains uncertain.
Since this incident happened, I had to be traveling to a long distance to power my phone and laptop in an acquaintance shop every day, both day and night, the cost of shuffling to that Shop is expensive and not economical.
Members of the community in my zone also do the same to power their phones every single day, this is very risky as it's dangerous to my property which is my laptop and phone to criminals.
These items are so valuable because without them I may not be very active in the platform anymore as before.
Also seeing how my people will also suffer in this challenge we are facing presently has become my serious concern.
Have I had enough money I will have bought and installed a 1000 watt solar power energy which can provide electricity 24 hours and can save me and even the villagers, though there are other options like buying the gasoline generator, if I buy that one it will still incur many expenses as I will buy petrol each time I want to put it on, this is not economical.
For this reason, solar power energy is the best because once mounted there will be no other thing to buy like fuel, it just needs the sun to work and at night it can work with the already stored power.
As I mentioned above, the beneficiaries would include Me, Steemians living nearby, and the community people of Ekpri Nsukara, Uyo, Nigeria.
This system will be installed at a strategic location where members of the community always have access to Charge their devices. And it is also going to be a secured location.
Time required For Implementation
The project implementation would be a quick one. On Confirmation of disbursed funds for the project. Not more than a week would be enough to move equipment and materials to the site, after which a day or two will be enough to round up installations, testing, and launching.
The Solar plant will generate 1000 watts of Electricity for this spot. One crystalline Solar panel to regularly charge the battery, along with a 100ahms backup battery. This plant can run for 24hours.
|Serial Number||Item||Price In Naira||Price In Steem|
|1.||1kva Inverter with internal Charger||24,000||160|
|2.||30A PWM controller||15,000||100|
|3.||100ah deep cycle battery||58,000||387|
|4.||200watts Mono crystalline Solar panel||40,000||267|
Note: Price of steem is based on the current price of today 18th May,2022
Project Implementation Stages
After the disbursement of Funds, the project is scheduled to go through the stages below:
- Shipping the equipment and materials to the site from the depot.
- Installation of the plant
- Testing of the plant
- Commissioning/ launching of the plant.
All would be published here for fairness.
I consider this very important. Solar plants required minimal maintenance Operations. I will undergo a few days of training from the technicians that will do the installation in other to have full knowledge of how to take care of the plant. And I will also take the lead in monitoring the plant from time to time and in rare cases watch off excess dust on the surface of the solar panels.
In case of plugs or charging points malfunction, I can easily change the plug or sockets.
The idea of installing Solar Power energy is going to be very effective because this is not going to benefit only me, but also members of my zone who will also be suffering from this lack of Electricity.
If this project is achieved, I will benefit fully, members of my community will also benefit as well, steemians living around will benefit and this will be a good ground for people to know more about the steemit platform, it will also serve as a promotional activity.
It can attract more investors to the platform, especially when they gain their trust in such a project.
On the 17th of May 2022, I meet with my country representative @ngoenyi to discuss the scope of this plan/project and to her, it was a nice development.
My aim is to allow all other people to benefit from this project if achieved.
Though I am still active now despite this electricity problem, the truth is that I take a lot of risks going out to charge my devices in order to maintain my activeness.
If this project is approved, the necessary procedure would be followed.
I’ll make sure that I post all the necessary updates on the steps I took to implement them in each stage.
I am please seeking assistance from the steemit team and various charity Groups to please come to our aid, thank you very much as you anticipate assisting us.
In other not to affect my club status, the smilenigeria account would be used to collect donations for this project if approved.
