Taking Back Our Power!
One of the benefits of solar energy is that it decentralises power production and distribution. Communities have many new options for sharing and producing their own power which can be as simple as running a cable next door with a private meter from your excess solar production. The idea of centralised generation and distribution of energy has outlived its useful days and we can now celebrate the dawn of a new era of energy independence.
Supporting Community Solar Projects
888 Solar Tek supports community solar projects with innovative technology and solutions for the generation, distribution and equitable sharing of power. Our ethos is to create more choices for energy independence and assist in creating new social and technology models to localise power independent from the grid.
If you are involved in a community project and you would like us to share our knowledge and add value, please contact us. We would love to help you :)
888 Solar Tek is a proud supporter of the international charity, SolarAid, that provides access to clean, affordable solar lights. Its goal is to eradicate the kerosene lamp from Africa by 2020, and we are delighted to contribute 10% of our profits to this cause.
One small light, one big idea
A solar lamp does more than shine a light. A solar lamp protects the environment and transforms lives. Nearly 600 million Africans live off-grid, with no access to electricity. Many rely on toxic kerosene lamps for lighting. These polluting lamps emit noxious black smoke and burn up to 20% of household income – locking millions into poverty.
By contrast, solar lights cost as little as $10, pay for themselves after 12 weeks, and last for five years.
