It is a well known fact that about 1.3 billion people are forced to live their lives in energy poverty across the globe. That is 17% of the global population living in the dark. This means that these people lack access to basic energy services. Access to energy, means access to education, communication, and income generating opportunities.
Life without electricity is almost unimaginable for some people. Electricity allows us to power the technology we use every day. Now close your eyes & imagine what your life would look like if you had no power or light in the evening or imagine not being able to turn on the central heating/cooling system in your home, use the toilet, preserve food in your fridge/freezer or have clean running water.
Even for most that are connected to the grid, the power supply is epileptic. Every year, thousands of families will experience power cuts due to natural disasters, bad weather or power line faults. A small storm that damages one power line can mean a power outage for hundreds of families and homeowners, causing total disruption in their daily routines.
A place where there is no electricity would suffer great underdevelopment. It sometimes takes a lot for some people to realise that without electricity it isn’t just internet and Wi-Fi that is affected, it also means no cash machines, no lifts, no power to keep the factories going, and no power to charge mobile phones. It is seen as the end of normality as we know it.
The sun is the most abundant and free energy source, when compared with the other alternative and renewable energy sources available for Africa. It’s abundant, sustainable and available everywhere. It’s a solution for everyone that lacks adequate power supply.
Clean, healthy and affordable energy is a basic right of every individual, regardless of the nationality or status; and we are of the opinion that no one should be left behind.
It is our vision to eradicate energy poverty by year 2030, and for every household to partake of clean, safe, sustainable and affordable energy. We want to create a world where there is little or no difference between the well-developed urban areas and the underdeveloped rural places.
We aim to transform the lives of people living in this penurious state by being their energy partner for life. This is why we are offering a line of quality conscious solar products that are built to last. With Salpha Energy Solar Solutions, everybody is able to tap into the sun and enjoy it’s full potential.
