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yet here we are in the 21st with over 600 million people in Africa forced to light their homes with dangerous, outdated, technologies such as candles and kerosene lamps.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


I promise to add more pages and photos to this blog about the past, present and future of Solar in Africa such as…

  • The Neema Crafts solar project from 2007 – a project I established together with Neema Crafts and Courtney Paisley, working with disabled youth in Tanzania. This project is very close to my heart.
  • Insights into the SolarAid story….it’s been an unbelievable few years (it feels like ten!) with so many amazing people and plenty of challenges along the way!
  • More about the development of the technology… from locally assembling panels, to prototyping…to mass production…yep, it feels like we’ve been through the industrial revolution in 3 years.
  • More Links (I’m learning as I go along with this blog, so stick with me and…suggestions welcome!)
  • What lies ahead for 2012…. big, big plans to scale up and reach more people.
