Uganda turns to solar energy as it grapples with rapid deforestation that has left several parts of the country dry as trees disappear. The East African country is now using its first large-scale solar power hybrid as a way of controlling and protecting the environment from degradation. Hundreds of people who previously used firewood as a source of energy are now using solar energy, a move the government hopes will go a long way to save the environment. Our correspondent Daniel Arapmoi reports from Kampala.

"Power Struggle" Sub-Saharan Africa Uganda and Electricity/Power Development The developing nations struggle with obtaining adequate power without oil or coal. They do however have lots and lots of sun and water power potential.
This video provides a sense of what it is like to watch live a total solar eclipse. This time was in Uganda on November 3rd 2013 at 17:22 from the Japyemonen Primary School outside Pokwero. The weather started very nicely but it got more cloudy during the partial phase. The clouds were moving relatively fast and also partially dissipated with ten minutes to go. Totality was glorious, albeit very short, only 18 secs. Thank you to all the Ugandan people that made this trip and incredible adventure!
East Africa’s largest solar plant has been commissioned in Soroti district Eastern Uganda. Made up of 32,680 photovoltaic panels, the 10 Megawatts facility is the first grid-connected solar plant in Uganda. The US$ 19 million facility owned by access power and partly funded by the European Union is expected to provide sustainable electricity to over 40,000 homes, schools and business areas. UBC’s Cate Altamura reports…
Ugandans hope that a new solar plant, which went into operation last week, will bring an end to their electricity woes. The $19 million (18-million euro), 33-acre solar plant -- the first of its kind in East Africa -- can produce 10 megawatts of power that is fed into Uganda's national power grid.
This video is a short clip of some of the highlights from Uganda 2017 trip.
