SolarAid: Light a Village Update

Date: 23/06/2023

In March 2023, NextEnery Foundation began supporting SolarAid’s Light a Village programme to bring solar energy to the poorest, last-mile communities in rural Malawi with Solar Home Systems (“SHSs”). The programme was requested by the Malawian Government. Please refer to the project page for more details.

All installations were completed at the end of April. SolarAid is now conducting a study to monitor and evaluate the impact of this expanded SHS pilot over time in order to sustainably scale the model across rural Malawi in future.

In the meantime, this video demonstrates the impact which the programme has already made: Light a Village Innovation – YouTube.
