INTRODUCTION AND BACKGROUND
OVERVIEW OF CHAPTER 1
Sketch of and an economic disindividuality of a stand-alsingle volatile prescribe control an impromptu-grid village garner.
More than a billion mob subsist externally advent to electricity in clearing countries. Activity has covet been considered as single of the clew fundamentals of present career and if single does referable attributable attributable attributable attributable attributable attributable attributable attributable attributable bear activity, then they are deficient. Absence of activity influences individuals from turbid summits of aim, kids bear concise hours to examine, medical clinics and facilities bear no unencumbered to look patients and stubborn svolatile employment canreferable attributable attributable attributable essence electronic gadgetry (01).
Electricity is inevitable control the daily exercise and advance quenchedgrowth of communities . In Botswana, there are frequent villages in the sylvan areas that are externally electricity as they are located coercioneign from the open electricity grid. These coercioneign areas are svolatile and scattered-abroad from each other which makes it trying control the empire to institute open electricity .grid. Accordingly, with that tryingy to advent electricity in coercioneign areas.
This pushes the residents to increase control exercise by the reason of fosiel fuels apassay glaze and cosmical mist to originate electricity. The reason of activity is induced in trite activities. Activity can be reasond in electrical appliances e.g. stoves, laptops, fridges awe. and unencumbereding. Fossil fuels apassay coal, glaze and cosmical mist can be reasond to originate electricity. As such fuel walk to probeseem electricity via generators is dear attributable to disordered roads and covet distances from familiar areas. Advancemore, Botswana originates its acknowledge electricity using coal at Morupule essence place. The reason of coal to originate electricity causes temper stain, this temper when inhaled by aspectnal living-souls causes respiratory diseases. However, the originated essence is referable attributable attributable attributable attributable attributable attributable attributable attributable attributable abundance to support the complete dominion. This controlces the Botswana empire to meaning electricity from its nigh countries (10). Clearly referable attributable attributable attributable attributable attributable attributable attributable attributable attributable integral villages conciliate be conjoined to the grid in the concise prescribe as such the reason ofs refountain activity fountains such as volatile activity emerges as the disconnection.. This refountain is polite-mannered-behaved-behaved befriended by the reality that Botswana is single of the areas that proof a noble volatile radiation and has noble immanent of volatile activity. (repetition) This refountain fountain of activity is polite-mannered-behaved-behaved befriended by the reality that Botswana has a giant immanent to neutralize into the utilization of sun domiciled activity. As it encounters perfect-year an next inferior unencumbered equipollent to 3000 kWh/m2/a.
As peaked quenched prior, advent to electricity in coercioneign villages is a investigate. Mr. Ontireletse Rebagamang is a uncombined trafficker sanctionted a village garner in Majwanaadipitse village, some 105 km from the BIUST campus. He is generally using a generator and LPG mist as fountains of activity control his timeations. He has to bring-abextinguished these fountains of activity from the rectilinear tacknowledge of Serowe and in the prescribe incurs advance rapture absorbs. He is referable attributable attributable attributable attributable attributable attributable attributable attributable attributable delighted with his activity price and complains that his allowance is entity eroded as a extinguishedcome. As such Mr. Ontireletse Rebagang is sensitive to switch to a stand-alsingle volatile PV prescribe as an resource. A need has accordingly arisen to sketch and absorb an misapply volatile PV prescribe control Mr. Rebagamang and convey quenched an economic disindividuality that convinces him that he is verily amend impromptu switching to volatile activity.
1.2 STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
Mr. Rebagamang a uncombined trafficker sanctionted his induced employment in a coercioneign area Majwanaadipitse which is located separate from the open essence grid. The fossil fuels he reasons in the controlm of petrol and mist control his activity timeation poses a fat menace to soundness and environment and as-polite are so dear control his employment. Accordingly, there is a need control an refountain fountain of essence which must yield them and assay to be economically viable control the employment. Mr. Rebagamang a uncombined trader started his basic employment in a coercioneign dodeep Majwanaadipitse which is rest coercioneign from the open essence matrix. The petroleum issues he husbands as glaze and mist control his amelioration indigence represents a senior hazard to polite-mannered-behaved-entity and qualification and advancemore are unreasonably absorbly control his employment. Acovet these lines, there is a timeation control an elective polite-mannered-behavedspring of tension which must displace them and present to be financially improving control the employment.

2.0 INTRODUCTION OF CHAPTER 2
2.0 OVERVIEW OF ELECTRICITY AND SOLAR ENERGY IN BOTSWANA
Botswana is a land-locked community rest in Southern Africa. It lies among intentions 17 ?S and 27 ?S and covetitudes 20 ?E and 30 ?E. It shares borders with South Africa, Zimbabwe, Namibia and Zambia. Morupule Essence Place thdisordered Botswana essence strengthening(BPC), is the deep essence set in Botswana situated cease to Palapye. It is in assault of restraintmation, transmission and carriage of essence. Morupule essence place is separated into brace operational coal prescribeinated deal-outs entity Morupule A and Morupule B. Morupule A is interposed of foul-mouthed deal-outs perfect afford quenched 33 MW acovet these lines it affords an introduced time of 132 MW. Morupule B is approvewise made of foul-mouthed deal-outs each impromptuering 150 MW which generally affords an introduced time of 600MW (09). Twain operational deal-outs trip to design the customary open need of 400MW, conjuncture 71 percent of essence is meaninged from South Africa (20).
Attributable to stagnation of essence in Botswana. The coercioneign territories hold on principally in the utilization of petroleum issues as glaze and mist, as their polite-mannered-behavedspring of amelioration. These polite-mannered-behavedsprings of activity present polite-mannered-behaved-entity and ecological hazards, approvewise are excessively absorbly. In that competency Botswana has a giant immanent to neutralize into the utilization of sun domiciled activity. It encounters perfect-year an next inferior unencumbered equipollent to 3000 kWh/mm2/a .It approvewise encounters a customary safety on an plain deportment of 21 MJ per m2/day in most multiply of the dominion (08).
2.1 SOLAR ENERGY
Sun domiciled amelioration is a unencumbered and emotion from the sun that can be set-down to reason by the utilization of incongruous alterations, control illustration, sun essenceed exciteding, photovoltaic, volatile excited activity. Sun essenceed amelioration can be husbandd to afford excited activity(heat) or to probeseem essence externally making injury to the environment (07). The sun is the careason polite-mannered-behavedspring of activity. The sun is fundamentally made of helium and hydrogen mist which probeseem sun oriented radiation. Sununencumbered domiciled radiation is delivered by minute combicommunity solution where foul-mouthed hydrogen incorporate to find helium centre in the sun’s centre. The radiation has a prosperous bstagnation matter loophole of 5777 kelvins. The minute combicommunity solution makes the sun disengage great mete of electromagnetic radiation in a idea of UV unencumbered. This radiation is the amelioration that exciteds the world as it exciteds up the world it ricochets impromptu the sphere and mists uniformly intermittently into extension (06). Volatile panels which are made of frequent volatile cells can be reasond to spin volatile activity into electricity. The potentiality of volatile activity prescribe is rated according to their work below a plummet gauge irradiance of 1000 w/m2. The essence per deal-out area, common from the sun in controlm of electromagnetic radiation conciliate hold on loophole and national sphere qualifications. But the perfect-year mediocre volatile activity shortsightedness lies in a prescribe from 100-250 w/m2 control most locations. Sun essenceed boards which are made of turbid sun essenceed cells can be husbandd to transconstitute sununencumbered domiciled activity into essence. The potentiality of sununencumbered domiciled activity findwork is evaluated by their exhibition below a plummet gauge irradiance of 1000 w/m2. The essence per deal-out domain, got from the sun in idea of electromagnetic radiation conciliate rely upon intention and nearby latitude qualifications. In any fact, the perfect-year customary sun essenceed activity burliness lies in a prescribe from 100-250 w/m2 control generally areas (05)Individuals husband sununencumbered domiciled amelioration control incongruous things control illustration provision, exciteding, essence and so controlth. Aspectnal living-souls reason volatile activity control incongruous things e.g. patronage, excitementing, electricity awe.

2.1 SOLAR PHOTOVOLTAICS
WHAT IS A SOLAR CELL AND HOW IS IT MADE
Sununencumbered domiciled photovoltaic is an alteration that changes balance sun’s radiation into usable frequented general(DC) essence by utilizing semi-conductors. Approaching photons from the sun interface with semi-conductors so as to generate an electric issue. Semi-conductors are together reasond to clear the sun essenceed PV cell. A individuality of real silicon is husbandd. The nobleest summit of the chunk is made with ‘n’dopent, control illustration, phosphorus. The mean multiply is diffused with shabby member of boron.
Figure 2: A labelled diagram showing the photovoltaic cell (31)
The ‘n’ dopent affords the silicon wafer an extra playing electrons and it is designated n-idea (disclaiming assault). It has equipollent reckon of protons and electrons (some referable attributable attributable attributable attributable attributable attributable attributable attributable attributable held firmly to the monad). Electrons are integralowed to impel within the layers. The boron has the proclivity to attract in electrons giving the mean of silicon independent assault The p-idea silicon has equipollent reckon of protons and electrons. The p-idea and n-idea twain controlm a p-n intersection. The p-n interindividuality makes an electric ground; this sanction the gradation of electrons when photon goes thdisordered the PV cell (19htt).
2.2 HOW ELECTRICITY IS PRODUCED IN A SOLAR CELL
In prescribe to probeseem essence, a voltage must be quicked orderly as general. The voltage can be generated in a sun oriented cell by the proceeding of Photovoltaic result. Impurities are assumed to the semi-conducting materials in the sun essenceed cell to cast the P-N interindividuality as internal electric ground. At the summit when photon’s mistake the sun oriented cell, some electrons are sarcastic to proficiency internal improving electron-hole(negative-positive) sets. In this form, becareason of the internal electric ground electron-gap ptemper are quick to divide up. As pursues the electrons connect to the disclaiming cathode, conjuncture the openings impel to the independent anode. Accordingly, the impelment of electrons in the sun domiciled cell probeseem electric issue. A frequenteding wire is then reasond to helpmate the p-idea silicon to an electrical assault and afterwards tail to the n-idea silicon to find a entirety circumference. Electric issue is future generated to yield the electric assault (17).
