  • As prices plunge, Africa surges into clean, cheap solar energy

    According to IRENA, home solar systems in Africa can now provide electricity for many households for as little as $56 a year – a cost lower than getting energy from diesel or kerosene. “About 60 million people may be using off-grid renewable electricity of some kind in Africa. That is about 10 percent of those living off–grid,” IRENA Director-General Adnan Z. Amin said at a recent Off-grid Renewable Energy Conference in Nairobi.
