Mugurameno Village Electrification
Mugurameno is a small village located on the banks of the Lower Zambezi river in the Chiawa Game Management Area. The project was funded by Empowered By Light and the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation to serve as a demonstration of what the future of energy services in Africa could look like. The community is tied into the system and payments for the electricity consumed go toward its continued operation and maintenance. As part of the project, Empowered By Light connected the local primary school and is providing free energy for lighting and computers.
