EFO installed a 3,200 W solar system at the Freetown office of BBC Media Action. This installation is a hybrid system, working in conjunction with the power supply from the National Power Authority, which ensures the constant supply of electricity to the office. The mission of BBC Media Action is to alleviate poverty through media (bbc.co.uk/mediaaction), and thanks to the new solar installation the organization now has the reliable power supply to create, edit, and disseminate media around Sierra Leone. This is the second installation in the developing partnership between EFO and BCC Media Action.
