In one of these researched areas, 80% of the systems were not running anymore.
-Broken blades due to the very strong local wind: an inadequate system for this area.
-Batteries ran flat because of no additional power sources
-Other technical breaks: problem arose because efficient over effective systems were chosen
-It was not possible to repair the systems. Spare parts were far away located, young people moved to the cities leading to a lack of knowledge for maintaining and repairing the systems.
-Forbidden maintenance the systems. Farmers as end-users but not as owners.
-Fund of the project did not reach the farmers and the study site. Furthermore, equipment was stolen by farmers who pretended to be government officials.
Solutions: use customized hybrid systems to prevent batteries to run flat and save fuel, establish a sense of ownership, and provide better maintenance services.
