Olarro Camp – Masai Mara

Olarro Camp – Masai Mara

The Olarro Camp located in Masai Mara owned by Paul Allan of Microsoft is one of the very first fully eco friendly camp in terms of green power generation. Tafsiri was contracted to install the renewable energy system in 2008 and the system was set up and commissioned in 45 days.

The system consists of 72No X 170 Watts solar panels, 2No X 3.3 KW Unitron wind generators, 8 No X 3 KW Inverters and 96 X 2V lead acid batteries each at 750AH. Therefore this system is a 24KW system with a battery capacity of 3,000AH at 48V and it supports the entire camp without any need for a generator.
