Solar for Africa Blog The electric light bulb was invented in the 19th century, yet here we are in the 21st with over 600 million people in Africa forced to light their homes with dangerous, outdated, technologies such as candles and kerosene lamps. This is unacceptable for so many reasons. This site is all how the pico-solar revolution is changing the situation.
Bringing electricity to rural Africa
This blog is about being part of a growing movement that is bringing solar power to off grid Africa to help improve the quality of life for millions of people around the continent.
It’s been a long journey so far … and there is still a very long way to go. But I remain (some might say overly) optimistic that, in the not too distant future, children growing up in rural Africa will not know what a kerosene lantern is and how it works…they’ll be using solar light bulbs instead.
Feel free to browse the pages of this blog which briefly chart some of the work I have been involved in across Africa over the years. Lots more photos, pages, posts to come soon.
2012 is the year of Sustainable Energy for All and we all need to work together to help make this happen.
