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yet here we are in the 21st with over 600 million people in Africa forced to light their homes with dangerous, outdated, technologies such as candles and kerosene lamps.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

BBC: Solar solutions to eradicate kerosene

The Economist covered the African solar revolution a couple of weeks ago and now the BBC has written a great article about SunnyMoney’s work. Click here.

Great to see this – the more people who learn about the issue of kerosene lighting and the over 1 billion people living without electricity, the better.

Solar lighting is today so well developed that it offers a fantastic, immediate, low cost and long lasting solution to millions of people. It’s our job to make sure millions of people get the chance to benefit from the solutions available today… Please share far and wide!

One point of clarification: SunnyMoney is not an NGO. It’s now a company, owned by the charity SolarAid.
