African “Pay as You Go” Solar Energy Program
July 5, 2012 SolarThermalMagazine- While remote villages in Africa may not be the most expected place to find solar, IndiGo is shining light on unheard of locations through a “Pay As You Go” solar program which allows rural villagers to generate their own power via a photovoltaic panel and battery pack. They can then purchase the produced energy for as little as $1 a week.
This unique program has caught the eye of Soluxe Solar, a Connecticut-based solar company. The IndiGo program receives this week’s Soluxe “Solar Flare” – a weekly honor the company bestows on an individual or company making great strides in the world of solar advancement.
“Each day we are seeing solar develop and create opportunities never before thought possible,” says Soluxe Solar CEO Jeffrey Mayer. “The creativity behind the IndiGo program, which not only has tremendous potential to improve the lives of people in these remote locations but also have a positive impact on our environment as well is fantastic. We felt this was the perfect choice for this week’s Solar Flare.”
The solar company announces its weekly “Solar Flare” honoree on the company’s facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/SoluxeSolar and website, www.soluxesolar.com .
