The Rise of Solar Market: Evolution of Off-Grid Lighting in Three Kenyan Towns

For the past six years researchers affiliated with Lighting Africa have been visiting Kericho, Brooke, and Talek in Kenya to observe trends in the off-grid lighting market. Starting in 2009, the initial market survey provided a baseline for the types of off-grid lighting products that were available in an urban, a peri-urban, and an off-grid market. We returned in 2012 and 2014 to survey all three towns again and observe shifts in lighting technologies and power sources, product sales and revenues, and retailer  demographics.
