Rural Solar Charging Stations
Kumudzi Kuwale has since its startup in 2013 piloted different technical and financial models to reach out to people with no access to electricity today. One particularly successful model is the rural charging station, where customers can rent, buy and charge solar power equipment. This approach is seen to have positive effects on health, environment, education, business and women empowerment. The stations are planned and established in close collaboration with the local community in each case, and is bringing light and income to local villagers.
The first charging station has been operational since May 2014, and we now, through our more than 50 charging stations, give light to more than 25,000 people in rural Malawi.
Early 2019, we were awarded funding from EEP Africa that will allow us to rapidly scale up our charging station concept, through a project we call "No one should be left in the dark". Through the project, we will build 295 new stations across Malawi, bringing affordable and renewable light and electricity to an additional 150,000 people in rural Malawi by 2021.
