Market of Implementation

  • Myanmar

Problem

In Myanmar, 56% of low-income communities have no access to the national grid. Relying on rudimentary options such as candles, lead-acid batteries and kerosene to power generators and provide light, is not sustainable in the long run.


Furthermore, these products can fluctuate in price and cause negative health effects.


It is clear that there is a pressing need to find a solution that solves this issue effectively, and Solar Home has a solution for this.

Solution

At Solar Home, we aim to address the issue of lack of access to the national grid in Myanmar through the following ways:
  • Solar-powered lighting solutions - To offer communities access to affordable, clean solutions through a pay-as-you-go scheme, ensuring that the consumer pays the lowest cost per lighting hour
