Currently, 1.2 billion people worldwide live without access to affordable, reliable and safe modern energy. Collectively, they spend about US$27 billion each year on lighting and mobile phone charging with kerosene, candles, battery torches or other fossil fuel-powered transitional technologies. These traditional solutions are expensive, harmful to health, hazardous and polluting. They resign the poorest people on the planet to a life of energy poverty which constrains economic development and impedes access to education, health, and basic services including communications, water, and transportation. Off-grid solar energy products provide a safer, cleaner, cheaper and reliable alternative to conventional solutions.
