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century, yet here we are in the 21st with over 600 million people in Africa forced to light their homes with dangerous, outdated, technologies such as candles and kerosene lamps.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.

When there’s a huge solar energy spill…

Love this billboard…

Please spread this slogan as apparently this Greenpeace billboard was ‘rejected’ in Edmonton.

  1. I think the issue with the sign is that it’s a basic “A is good” hence “B must be bad” argument with no correlation between the two.

    Obviously night lighting in developping countries are important as it allows people to do activities such as studying or communication after the hours of work. This allows the country to develop which is good for all.

    There is also the possibility of countries closer to the equator generating power using PV and selling it to those further from the equator. For example, there have been some amazing projects happening in Spain in the last few years.

    However, it is important to ensure that any energy solutions are clean and PV in particular has some issues it needs to keep an eye on.
