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yet here we are in the 21st with over 600 million people in Africa forced to light their homes with dangerous, outdated, technologies such as candles and kerosene lamps.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

Hillary Clinton’s call to action on the challenge of Energy Poverty

This is too exciting not to post. (Fast forward to the 50th Minute of the video!)

Hillary Clinton issues a call to action at the Clinton Global Initiative on ‘The challenge of Energy Poverty.’ She explains that lack of access to electricity has ‘Profound consequences on Health, Education and Economic Development.’

With over 1.3 billion people without access to electricity, this is an urgent global need … a priority area, ripe for innovation and activism.’

I love the language she uses: ‘Dream Big.  Innovate.  Change lives for the better.’

It’s time to take our efforts to the next level and think through how we can make dramatic progress on energy access and energy poverty.’

I, personally, couldn’t agree more.
