Mobile Power Project

Did you know that in Sierra Leone, 94 percent of the population does not have access to electricity due to poor infrastructure and unaffordability?


Without clean, affordable and reliable electricity, education, health, and communications are negatively impacted.


To rectify this dire situation, WHI teamed up with Mobile Power Ltd. to provide clean, affordable energy to off-grid communities in Sierra Leone to help improve livelihoods, reduce carbon emissions and improve health. WHI is leveraging its network of village partnerships to deploy 25 Mobile Power Village Systems, reaching 2,000 households. Local entrepreneurs will be able to charge for the use of this energy thus ensuring employment and sustainable energy generation and distribution.


The objectives of our off-grid energy project are as follows:


  • Provide solar-powered lighting and power to 2,000 households in two years (approx. 12,000 beneficiaries) through a new smart battery pack technology;
  • Improve local economic development through opportunities for entrepreneurs and microenterprises;
  • Increase awareness and utilization of solar energy technology;
  • Generate jobs.


WHI and Mobile Power are currently rolling out Mobile Power’s Village Systems in rural areas of the Bombali and Tonkolili Districts of Sierra Leone’s Northern Province. Program activities include:


  • Identification of 25 villages with mobile phone coverage but limited access to electricity;
  • Socialization of the concept with village leaders;
  • Recruitment, contracting, and training of agents, including women, in 25 villages;
  • Deployment of program equipment to the field;
  • In-person monitoring of field activities, and remote monitoring of live data;
  • Program Evaluation


We look forward to providing you with updates on this new off-grid energy project.
