First Solar Coffee Pulper System in Papua New Guinea (PNG)

Gelehi villagers in the Unggai-Bena district of Eastern Highlands Province, where the min grid solar power system is build for lighting and coffee processing. The partnership was forged through a Memorandum of Understanding between the CIC and MG Corporation of Japan

Gelehi village in the Ungga-Bena district of Eastern Highlands Province witnessed a significant occasion on June 15th when a mini grid solar power system for lighting and coffee processing was officially launched.
 The event marks a milestone and is the first ever solar system to be trialed out in the country to be used to power a coffee pulper and also provide lighting for homes in the community of Gelehi.

 The new technology will run on an automotive system generated by solar energy, enabling the farmer to do other duties rather than hand pulping coffee.
 PNG currently exports 6 percent of its total coffee production to Japan. With this new partnership, it is anticipated to gradually increase the current trend of exports to Japan and possibly secure premium prices for groups involved in the long term.

 Pastor Albert Ukaiya of New Life Mision in Gilehe told the officials present that his community was grateful to be the first community to have this solar system piloted in their village, and they will give their undivided support to CIC and MG Corporation to fully implement it.

Off-grid solar lighting in rural PNG

Site Report from Jimi, Jiwaka, Papua New Guinea, (GPS: 5.553 S, 144.567 E)

 This installation was interesting and little hard mission. Location is Kaul in Jimi District of Jiwaka Papua New Guinea. Only way to achieve there is by Four-wheel drive of a landcruiser.
Journey is around 50km drive from our base of Banz, where is north edge of Wahgi valley. We enjoyed good scenery during two and half hour rough road driving to the Kaul.
 This area is no way for electric service. Only kerosene lamp was lighting device. Mobile phone charge is also problem and need long way journey for charge station.
 MG Nano Lighting is new device that will change life completely. This off grid Solar electric power system is supplying lighting and charging mobile phone. Another merit is supplying 240V AC power for normal electrical appliance of small size.
 Setup was only one and half. MG Nano Lighting is plug and play system. Mr. Peter Kamil of house owner showed me good smile with Smart lighting Nano.

MG Nano lighting was installed in remote house in Papua New Guinea Highlands, which is off-grid solar device providing lighting and 240V AC power. MG Nano lighting was installed in remote house in Papua New Guinea Highlands, which is off-grid solar device providing lighting and 240V AC power.
