We are working with distribution partners in Zimbabwe to bring clean, affordable solar light to families living off-grid and offset carbon emissions from fossil fuel lighting.
As part of our climate activities, Namene Solar is developing a project in Zimbabwe. Right now in Zimbabwe 59% of the population – 8.5 million people – don’t have access to electricity. In rural households, this figure jumps to 80%, meaning 1.2 million households are without energy access. Only 3.8% of households use solar energy for lighting with people living beyond the grid, or in areas with unreliable electricity, using fossil fuels, battery-powered torches, candles and firewood.
