SOLAR AS SERVICE
In rural Kenya, our solar leasing business provides households with a less expensive and healthier power solution for lights, radios, and cell phone charging.
- Fuel Based Lighting
- Single-use Batteries
- The Wall Outlet
It is estimated that fuel-based lighting throughout the world consumes 1.3 million barrels of oil per day. This form of lighting cause health issues, is extremely costly and dangerous.
Americans throw out almost 166,000 tons of single-use batteries each year! Batteries contain toxic heavy metals, and when improperly disposed of, they contaminate the environment.
Many of us take for granted the unlimited “free” power supply provided by wall outlets, that is until…we canʼt find an outlet to plug into! It proves difficult to keep “mobile” devices actually mobile, when there arenʼt charging solutions readily available.
It doesnʼt need to be this way – SOLIO is the solution!
