MTC Namibia Powers Cell Site with Wind/Solar Power

MTC Namibia has built a GSM cell site powered by wind and solar energy generation. The project was conducted by Motorola and the GSM Association. Once installed, the cost of power is almost zero, and wind and solar powered cell sites require minimal maintenance unlike a diesel driven generator which generally requires, at a minimum, a monthly visit for refueling.
