Market of Implementation

  • Myanmar

Problem

Off-grid households in rural areas of Myanmar currently use high GHG emitting energy sources for lighting and electricity needs. Besides their negative impact on the environment, these products, such as kerosene and diesel generators, can fluctuate in price and cause negative health effects. SolarHome seeks to convert a large number of there households to reliable and flexibly priced solar products.

Solution

SolarHome’s solution of replacing fossil fuel burning energy sources with solar-powered, all-in-one household systems plays an important part reducing emissions. In most cases, households that have purchased a solar home system completely cease using their previous fossil fuel-based energy sources.
