0.0/5 rating (0 votes)

New report from GOGLA, the global association for the off-grid solar energy industry, shows an overwhelming majority (94%) of people living with off-grid solar home systems reporting improvements to their quality of life. 

It also shows that 34% of households report being more economically active with 28% making an additional $46 per month on average

The research, funded by UK aid from the UK government and conducted by Altai Consulting, is based on data collected from 1,419 small-scale solar home system owners in Kenya, Mozambique, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda who purchased their system in the second half of 2017. With over 30 million people now living with off-grid solar in East Africa, the research was conducted to further understand the benefits of living with this power tool of change.
