In our previous blog post, we discussed how electricity has been the deadlock for Kenya’s growth. In particular, a lot of Kenyan private schools have limited access to affordable electricity, are burning dirty kerosene and paying an average of USD25 a month just to power up their schools.
With abundant sunshine, Kenya is naturally the perfect country to implement solar strategies; to convert sunlight into electricity. The government’s 2022 total electrification plan has already acknowledged the role that off-grid systems, mini-grids and stand-alone solar plants play in scaling up connectivity in Kenya.
CIS’s Solar for Schools program is in line with Kenya’s development agenda. By developing a smart, automated solar energy mechanism, schools can light up their arena, power up their phones and even laptops. Through Keycode and machine to machine technology, CIS is able to manage the system remotely in Europe, while allowing different users to use the same system, at the same time, in the same location.
By introducing cutting-edge European technology to Kenya, we are helping schools to save an average of USD11 every single month, thus assisting them to become self-sustainable. If you are interested in driving the change with us, get in touch!
