The village of Makongoro in the Buturi community of Tanzania lacks the resources to bring any form of energy to power the local school. The most reliable source of energy we could bring to the school is in the form of a photovoltaic system, as the climate of Buturi provides an ideal location for the implementation of such system. We have designed a solar microgrid specifically for Buturi and the needs of the school, that has the capability to power laptops, cell phones, and lighting throughout the school building. The system is fully detailed and explained in this report, with the final goal of implementation in the near future.
