How does your innovation work? To promote and facilitate their uses; we want to set up a device for cleaning solar panels by drones, The work will consist in creating: Two (2) cleaning devices carried by gives: To brush: A device to hang on the drone a motor driving a brush to clean or Liquid spray: a special environmentally friendly liquid to be sprayed by a device hanging on the drone A program to install on an Android tablet with following functions. - Preset the flight height Preset positions by GPS coordinates for a horizontal scan of the area (possibility to change the scan height relative to the area). Predefine the duration of the flight 3) an ecological and economical liquid and reducing the deposit of dust.

Stage 3: Proof of Concept

The tests have been done for the moment by the project team. We have already done more than 100 tests We built 2 prototypes and did some panel cleaning tests but without the autopilot program from a tablet. The device is suitable for amateur drones, for an additional investment, you will get a brush and a driving program to clean your solar panel.

Mission and Vision

education, communications and access to drinking water. From a KWH at 50 cents in 2018 to 5 cents in 2010 and 3 cents in 2015. Solar has helped supply the countryside: schools, hospitals, farms, homes have taken advantage of this technology become reliable. The quality of life in the countryside has improved, undeniably.

Competitive Advantage

89 percent of the rural population in sub-Saharan Africa lives without electricity, more than double the proportion (46 percent) of urban areas. For these people, even access to a reduced amount of electricity could lead to beneficial improvements in the areas of agricultural productivity, health, education, communications and access to clean water. . 89 percent of the rural population in sub-Saharan Africa lives without electricity, more than double the proportion (46 percent) of urban areas.

Planned Goals and Milestones

All the device (hardware + program) will be compatible with the majority of amateur drones. Develop a partnership to mass produce the cleaning devices to hang on drones and distribute them with the "Clean solar Burkina" pilot program
