SolaFin2Go: Solar Power Changing Lives in Rural Africa

This presentation will showcase the journey taken to deliver an exciting innovative project ‘SolaFin2Go’ in an off grid village in Botswana. SolaForm Ltd. are energy solution providers that have developed a clean power model to make energy accessible and affordable for rural off-grid communities in sub-Saharan Africa.

The SolaFin2Go project was designed to address the challenge of providing standalone cost effective solar systems to generate clean power and hot water for off-grid households in sub-Saharan Africa.

The concept was established in a living laboratory in the off-grid community of Jamataka in the central region of Botswana. Jamataka is a village of over 1,000 people, with a primary school roll of 360, a village clinic, and a service infrastructure of village shops, police and chief’s office. The village has a water supply but has never had grid electricity. Candles, Tilly lamps, gensets and wild harvested wood are the most commonly used fuels for lighting and cooking.
