A Video Introduction to Service-Based Solar Electrification

Our team is working together with internal and external partners across multiple sectors to help design off-grid energy access projects with a focus on health and education services as the goal of electrification. Every energy system that enables core community services needs to have a sustainable, long-term maintenance plan. Without this, systems that should last a decade or more can falter after the first few months or years, leading to economic loss and environmental waste – and most importantly, to disruption of the crucial services they were built to support. A service-based model that focuses on electricity service delivery, rather than mere procurement of the solar energy systems helps ensure systems are maintained over the long term.

We have produced a 4-part video series on sustainably electrifying schools and health facilities. The above video provides an overview, the series also includes:
