Over 1 billion people in the world lack access to electricity, with over 600 million of those living in Sub Saharan Africa. The cost to extend the grid to these areas is prohibitive, with investment costs of ~$1000 per connection vastly outweighing any potential revenue from the customer. Small lanterns and solar home systems are a cost effective way of getting a basic level of service, but they are not enough to drive economic development and income growth in these communities.
Our system combines a capable and powerful AC core, with cost effective and affordable DC connections. The high power AC core can power productive loads, such as mills and welders, which can boost productivity and incomes in the community, thus supporting economic development. The DC connections are for those who cannot afford or don't need a more expensive AC connection, and whose demands of lighting, phone charging, TV etc can be satisfied more cost effectively with our DC technology.
