Mzuri Sana Farm

The Mzuri Sana Farm is a chicken farm located in Ruwa, Zimbabwe. Staff have to shower when entering and leaving the poultry hatchery area. The 200 litre pressure geyser cannot cope with the demand for 30 to 40 showers per day. In order to relieve the electricity supply situation, two solar thermal systems were installed.

In one year, this installation gives a solar yield of 13.77 MWh and is responsible for the avoidance of 4760.99 kilograms of CO2 emissions.
