Solar-Powered Desalination System for Coastal Areas
More than 75,000 people in Ghanaian coastal areas rely on saltwater consumption, which has often caused dental damage and diseases such as cholera and bilharzia. The wells and boreholes in coastal areas supply water with high saline content because of underground seepage from the sea. The existing desalination technologies are expensive and unaffordable for coastal settlers. Solar energy costs have become relatively bearable in the past decade, and desalination means can be developed using low-cost resources with the excellent compromise to produce potable water effectively. This project uses a solar-powered desalination system to produce 100 litres of potable water per day.
