Now Playing: Ashden Awards 2009: Solar Energy Foundation
ADDED: 6/22/2009 at 5:08 AM
The Solar Energy Foundation has opened up new horizons for 10,000 villagers in Rema, Ethiopia and nearby. Their homes now have electricity for the first time thanks to 2,000 new solar home systems costing families just 75 pence a month. Young people now have the chance to train as solar technicians in an International Solar School. Graduates of the scheme have opened four Solar Centres in other areas of Ethiopia with a further 8,500 solar home systems due to be installed by the end of the year.
