Koedoeskop Farm Project

Overview

  • A farm 7km from Koedoeskop houses 12 families that work on this farm on a daily basis.
  • Due to limitations in access to grid power alternative methods were investigated to power these farms.
  • Power is needed for the basic appliances like lights, fridge, TV, radio and some small appliances. 

Briefing

  • Power from alternative sources need to supply the basic appliances i.e. lights, TV, fridge, radio and some other small appliances.
  • The system should supply adjacent residences and be able to expand in future if needed.
  • This system should have a status monitor.
  • These systems should have GSM communication and logging in order to inform the farm owner if system is being abused.
