Solar Powered Transmission: A Case Study from South Sudan

A case study of an Internews project in South Sudan, investigating the use of solar powered transmissions. It shows that the upfront capital costs of solar was more expensive, but the annual running costs were 92.8% cheaper than a generator site. Beyond financial savings, using solar power has also resulted in positive community engagement and ease of day-to-day maintenance so staff can focus on programming instead – making it a sustainable way of producing community radio.
