Wind Turbines recently installed to improve service delivery
The Lcom Team has recently installed Wind Turbines on Mount Shepstone and Mapasa mountains. Reason for this was due to increased electricity demands at the towers and rapid network growth.
Solar energy is ineffective on days which are overcast as batteries are not able to be recharged. By adding wind turbines to these highsites we are able to continually recharge the batteries, which power the towers, hereby ensuring a far more reliable service to our users.
