Eye Radio is a national independent broadcaster that informs, entertains and educates millions of south Sudanese across the country. We extend our sincere gratitude and appreciation for the wonderful and excellent Job SustainSolar did by installing one of the best systems in the country. We are currently operating 19 hours a day on the PV system, this has improved our operation in the cost of previously running a diesel generator from 24 hours to only 5 hours a day.
