Malolo was the test site for the Husk Power Systems biomass technology. We successfully constructed and tested a fully operational Husk biomass power plant. Our experience with this test site helped prepare us to move ahead with the launch of our first round of village level, off-grid electrification projects. These first village sites serve as the foundation for our planned program to electrify up to 100 off-grid rural communities, in the Kilosa District.
