The availability of sustainable energy is essential for a developing community of people:
Many communities in sub-Saharan Africa lack access to electricity or the infrastructure to get it. They are “off the grid.”
Any electricity that is available is unreliable and expensive.
- Lack of electricity means students are unable to study at night, losing educational opportunity.
- Lack of electricity means medical facilities can’t power their equipment, can’t run refrigerators to preserve medicines, and can’t be counted on to heal people.
