Solar Run Solar Home Power System in Ivory Coast

Ivorian children gathered to watch TV

This is children in Ivory Coast, Africa, sitting around and watching TV happily.

 

We have seen the backward infrastructure and the poor living environment. Poverty is one aspect. We have also seen the curiosity and love of children. It is the extreme desire for information, knowledge, and new things, and the exploration and thirst for the outside world, and expectations for the future.

 

There are 7 billion people in the world, 800 million people live in the dark, and nearly 700 million people live in Africa.

 

Although Côte d’Ivoire is the country with the highest level of urbanization in West Africa, its electrification rate is only 58% (data in 2018). The local poor can only rely on the most primitive lighting methods (such as candles and kerosene lamps). The methods are inefficient, uneconomical, unhealthy, harmful to the environment, and risk of fire. Moreover, the cost of these candles and kerosene lamps also takes up 23% of their income, seriously affecting the quality of life.

Use kerosene lamps for lighting

Solar Run has been helping poor people in areas without electricity to use healthy, reliable, and cost-effective solar lighting products. It has provided solar lighting products to more than 117,000 people in 55 countries in off-grid areas. The solar products produced by our company meet the Lighting Global quality standards (Lighting Global is the World Bank Group’s platform to support the sustainable growth of the international off-grid lighting market).

Last November, our local distributor took the Solar Run solar home system and solar lantern products to households in off-grid areas. While meeting the basic lighting needs, and considering their pursuit of a better life, we also took them Apollo, a solar product that supports Pay-As-You-Go (PAYG). It is a solar energy system product that can be paid in installments. It is a solar home system that can be afforded by low-income families. Also, it supports both lighting, mobile phone charging, and other small household appliances, which eases the trouble caused by the local summer heat. At the same time, it meets more of their living and entertaining needs.
