PRODUCTIVE USE OF SOLAR ENERGY
According to GOGLA, 1 billion people across Africa and Asia, about one in seven people on earth, have no access to electricity. The UNDP’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. Our efforts contribute to reaching the following goals:
Research shows that solar home systems (SHS) do generate economic activity. As much as 58% of households undertake more economic activity due to the SHS systems. In addition, over 10% of solar customers have started a new business, and 7% report acquiring a new job. Furthermore, over 90% of households replacing kerosene lamps, used by millions in the developing world, claim both improved health and feelings of safety. (Source, GOGLA)
