Renewable energy is energy produced from sources that do not deplete or can be replenished within a human's life time. The most common examples include wind, solar, geothermal, biomass, and hydropower. This is in contrast to non- renewable sources such as fossil fuels.
KIMPA solar photovoltaic installations are preceded by a preliminary "energy balance" study of the home to be electrified and by sizing followed by an installation corresponding to the UTE C 15-712-2 standard relating to autonomous photovoltaic installations not connected to the network distribution public with battery storage.
This type of installation (with storage) is of particular interest in sub-Saharan Africa where solar resources are important but whose electricity grid is isolated: without interconnection, it is difficult to withstand the sudden variations in the correlation between production and consumption of electricity.
The use of photovoltaic generators therefore associated with a storage system gives the possibility of decorrelating the production of electricity consumption: in the absence of sunlight, the storage restores the energy previously accumulated during very sunny hours during which the production was excessive in relation to the needs of the consumer. This storage therefore and the entire energy conversion device thus allow reliability and valuable smoothing of the signal, protecting our electrical equipment from any damage.
Advantages of renewable energy
Using renewable energy over fossil fuels has a number of advantages. Here are some of the top benefits of going green
Renewable energy won’t run out
Renewables save money
Maintenance requirements are lower

Monobloc thermo-tube solar water heating system
KIMPA solar water heaters absorb the sun's rays through sensors made of thermo-tubes placed on the roof and transform it into heat. They are equipped with a microcontroller / conventional water heater assembly all connected to the 220V electrical network allowing the control / management of the water temperature up to 90 ° C.
This water is then brought into a storage tank which serves as a reserve of sanitary and other water.

Solar pumping and adaptation system in an agricultural environment
The solar pumping system offered by KIMPA Group is an efficient, reliable and clean alternative to conventional motor pumps and pumps powered by other electrical power sources (energy or generator).
These solar pump systems work "for free" because they do not consume electricity from the public grid. They can either be directly powered by the solar panels for operation "over the sun" or by a battery park which will be charged by the solar panels for offset operation...

All in one solar spotlight and lamppost
The "All In One" street light from KIMPA is a type of street light powered by photovoltaic energy. It is composed of:
Contained in the same block with the battery and the luminaire, it is composed of monocrystalline cells which transform the sun's rays into direct current.
It is incorporated into the photovoltaic module and stores the current transformed by this module, thus allowing the luminaire to operate at an optimum voltage.
It consists of a set of high performance LEDs that provide better visibility of the environment.
It is made of galvanized steel and is resistant to strong winds. Their height generally varies between 5m and 8m depending on the geographical specificities of the terrain..
How it works
Constituted in a single block, the "All In One" street lamp captures photovoltaic energy via its modules and then through its integrated regulator, stores this energy in the battery which in turn will release it to power the luminaire at the same time. night fallen. the lamppost is switched on and off automatically thanks to the regulator's intelligent energy management technology.
