A typical evening in rural Nigeria is one where farmers hurry home at sunset and kerosene lamps light up petty stalls and charcoal kitchens.
This scenario depicts typical rural life after dark in off-grid communities, representing over 60% of the Nigerian populace that are compelled to rely on kerosene lamps and occasionally dangerous gasoline generators for their lighting needs.
These lighting sources require daily financing, forcing income earners to prioritise tasks involving the use of light at night. The vision behind Emel Solar Solutions is one that is focused on bridging the electricity gap in Nigeria.
