WEBINAR: Solar Generators in Ukraine: A Case Study on Resilience

Wednesday, November 30 at 12pm ET/9 am PT
Join us for this free webinar where we’ll discuss how people facing intermittent and unreliable grid conditions in tough environments can use solar generators to power critical infrastructure. 

A Case Study on Resilience

With over 30% of the country’s power stations destroyed from attacks, Ukraine faces an extreme challenge to provide reliable and consistent electric power to citizens. In this webinar, we’ll talk about our experience powering hospitals, field clinics and much more in Ukraine through the use of solar generators and panels.

Join us as our presenters will cover:

• Ease of use:  (Ukrainian deployments by first time users)
• Differences of gas generators and battery generators
• Lithium battery charging winter and summer
• How to manage power usage
• Logistical challenges
• Security concerns

The webinar will also feature a live training of solar generators and portable panels by NUE COO Lee Feliciano.
