Grid reliability is a concern in rural regions of developing countries. In many countries, grid reliability in urban areas is problematic as well.
The lack of reliable power infrastructure in rural areas and the growing demand for stable communications has created a challenge for providers and operators on how to role out their infrastructure to these areas. To solve this problem operators have relied heavily on (diesel) generators to provide power to their equipment. And this is not their only problem. This has created an environment of high (unpredictable) operating costs, increased environmental pollution and the logistical challenge of diesel delivery. Taking these factors into consideration, it makes it tougher for operators to justify expanding their services to rural areas without existing power infrastructure.
NWNS surveys existing electrical power situations, makes recommendations for improvement, and manages design & implementation including the offering of a power SLA.
