Togo Group Generator for Electricity Lome, Togo West Africa Thursday, June 28, 2007
I purchased this noisy little, smoke making 2-cycle gas powered generator for my room in Lome, Togo.
This is a Group in Togo French, it is not a Generator, and they call it a Group.
This cost me 35,000 CFA for the Generator, and I made a 6 meter cord that cost me 3000 to run a good wire to the room. The gas cost about 1000 CFA per day.
38,000 CFA or about 80 US in the purchase. 1000 or 2 dollars per day in Gas.
I now have a toy; it makes 220 AC or 12-Volt DC and has some small plug for a cell phone.
Cost of room in hotel with Group Generator is 6000 CFA; I am in a room for 2000 and 1000 for the petrol
38,000 dived by 3000 net saving it will take 13 days to break even and then after that I am saving a lot of money per day. Now, if I could figure out how to put in a backpack and carry gas easy, life would be confusing.
