We want to increase access to clean, affordable energy in rural communities without access to grid-based electricity by promoting modern off-grid lighting products and mini-grid connections.
In rural electricity-starved communities, clean solar lighting systems can have a real impact on the quality of life by improving:
- EDUCATION: Availability of sustainable economic lighting allows for more hours for study.
- EMPLOYMENT: Increased economic opportunity and income generation potential
- SAFETY: Using solar energy is safer than kerosene lamps and helps to avoid dangerous hazards
- SUSTAINABILITY: Solar panels emit very little pollution, reducing the effects of global warming
