DSTC is an innovative contributor to the wider use of solar energy in West Africa, Ghana in particular. It has helped to expand the solar market in Ghana and other ECOWAS countries by providing technical training on the design, installation and maintenance of stand-alone solar systems, and on solar water pumping systems.
Since its establishment in 2009 more than 1500 participants from 3 countries have attended one or more of our 7 different training courses. Many of the students have come from educational institutions on scholarships from donors which DSTC has been involved in arranging.
Our cooperation partners include NGOs, Association of Ghana Solar Industries (AGSI), institutions and polytechnics in the rural districts. Our emphasis is on providing solar home systems to schools, lights and solar vaccine fridges to clinics and solar water pumps to selected communities, all in the off-grid districts as we believe that equal educational and health facilities for all is essential for the development of the nation. Also the role of women in the society is most important for DSTC, we have been involved in providing solar lighting systems to the SWAPO organization in Siregu in the Upper East Region of Ghana.
DSTC has played an important role in capacity building in the rural districts of Ghana with both technical and business training courses for rural service providers. The company is also offering consultancy services on solar projects and project implementation.
