Risks of dirty energy
Off-grid families use kerosene oil lamps and candles for basic energy needs. As well as being expensive over the long term, this carbon-based fuel damages health and causes fatal fires.
Households on the grid depend on expensive diesel generators to back up unstable service. Those who can access low-quality solar products suffer from unreliability due to lack of after-sales care. These challenges drive our commitment to offering a sustainable, reliable and clean alternative.
