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.
