Solar Lighting in Rural Areas VPoA(ID: 103000000003445)

Description
The project aims to install small photovoltaic cells on the roofs of thousands of houses in Ethiopia and provide the households with the equipment for using the produced electricity for lighting. Thereby, the population can use clean electricity and can avoid using kerosene lamps. In Ethiopia’s rural areas approximately 98 percent of the population do not have access to electricity. The alternatively used kerosene lamps deliver inappropriate lighting and affect people’s health. By replacing kerosene with solar energy greenhouse gas emissions are reduced by the project. The Solar Energy Foundation (SEF) was founded in Addis Abeba to implement the project and to establish a sustainable solar market in Ethiopia. In addition, the “International Solar Energy School (ISES)” was set up to train personnel to professionally install and maintain solar home systems in Ethiopia.
