Solar insight

In Q4 of 2014 the International Energy Agency reported that there were over 25 million Ugandans, 85% of the population, living without access to electricity.

In attempts to reduce this figure, Uganda has started introducing residential areas to affordable and clean solar power through the implementation of modular high quality solar home systems.

Uganda’s average solar radiation per day is 5.1 kWh/m2.
