SunPower Innovation CEO Ernest Amissah siging exclusive partnership agreement with AlphaESS Vice President, Dong Lin.
As part of its commitment to deliver premium orthopedic healthcare in Ghana and beyond, AlphaESS has worked with exclusive partner SunPower Innovations to help the Foundation of Complex Orthopedic Spine (FOCOS) commissioned a large off-grid solar project to reduce its power bill by 60% hence the decrease in health care cost and increase the chances for patients.
The 700kwh Hybrid Solar System with 1LMWH Battery Storage has been touted by experts as the largest in Africa for a hospital.
The project, which is the first of its kind in the nation, estimated at over $1.5 million Representing the Deputy Minister for Energy, Mr. Wisdom Togobo, Director for Renewable Energy, lauded the efforts of all the donors/sponsors for this gesture.
"It is the desire of the government to install solar energy to the remote areas. FOCOS Hospital by far consumes a lot more energy hence this philanthropic gesture is a good one."
He encouraged the private sector such as AlphaESS to come in to augment the effort of the Ministry of Energy to provide rooftop solar power to needy areas and institutions.
Expressing his excitement on the fruition of this project, Prof. Oheneba Boachie-Adjei, the President and Founder of FOCOS Hospital and Josh Deng, International Development Director of AlphaESS appealed to the public to support FOCOS Hospital.
Speaking on the plethora of benefits this installation will give FOCOS, Mr. Eric Adjah, Technical Lead for SunPower Innovation, said, "this is one of the first in the hospital sector which will help FOCOS Hospital cut down on its huge power bills and enjoy stable a 24 hour supply power, to the hospital, with the generator only serving as backup"
Among the FOCOS Management members present at the ceremony were: Josh Deng, Business Development Director of AlphaESS, Ambassordor Fritz Poku, Board Chairman of the Hospital, Dr Joseph Ogyaadu, Medical Director, Dr Ofori Amankwah, Director for Medical Services and Dr Irene Wulff, Associate Medical Director.
The newly crowned Miss Ghana Ms. Rebecca Kwabi and her runner up were also in the audience.
Josh Deng, International Development Director AlphaESS also expressed his excitement about the commencing of this project, "I'm really impressed by they work that have been done. I've visited solar projects all sizes around the world and definitely the work you have done here is world-class and that also gives me the strength and confidence that we can all work together to bring more solar and battery projects to this country. We have signed an exclusive partnership not only to bring more products to the market but also we began to bring the Chinese finance package to the market so I'm pretty optimistic about operations and future"
AlphaESS will also continue to implement the mission of "Making clean energy beneficial to the greatest extent to everyone in the world."
About the project
Internal diagram of container energy storage system
During the day, the electricity generated by the photovoltaic panels power the medical equipment and the rest of the hospital and the surplus power is stored in the energy storage systems. When there is PV at night, the energy storage system automatically switches to continuously supply power to the loads and the entire energy storage system guarantees an uninterruptible 24/7 power supply.
AlphaESS's remote monitoring and maintenance platform, the AlphaCloud platform can help customers monitor the system's operating status in real time through web pages or mobile APPs, remotely set various functions, perform remote software upgrades for inverters, EMS, BMS, etc. and do debugging work.
Established in 2012, AlphaESS specializes in advanced battery storage products and intelligent energy management solutions for residential and commercial customers. AlphaESS products have spread to more than 30 countries through our partners, benefitting thousands of customers.
