Powering Opportunity: The Economic Impact of Off-Grid Solar
This new report from GOGLA brings positive news that households using small scale-solar power in East Africa are reporting a rise in economic activity, with improvement in income and job opportunities. It demonstrates the economic benefits of off-grid solar power in the developing world.
Nearly 60% of off-grid solar owners undertake more economic activity within just three months of using a solar home system as they work longer, start businesses or get a new job.
It comes as global leaders gather to discuss how to meet the world’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) at the UN’s High Level Political Forum in New York <sustainabledevelopment.un.org/hlpf/2018> (8-18th July 2018). The group is seeking insight on how to meet SDG’s including SDG7 ‘Ensuring access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all by 2030’.
