Our pilot project has started

We recently launched our pilot in Kenya to introduce the prototype of our solar-powered telephone charging station. Since the beginning of March 2020, our local team has been operating the station at various locations in the Homabay area, 300 km northwest of Nairobi.

The station has been placed next to local phone charging shops so that both shop owners and their customers can experience the many benefits of our product.

Up to 12 customers can charge their mobile phone batteries at the same time, and the charging time is between 1.5 and 2 hours, which is much faster than the usual 3 to 4 hours in local shops. Each charging box is lockable so that only the customer and our Solar4Schools employees have access.

Payment is made via the mobile payment service M-PESA. Especially in times of the coronavirus pandemic, enabling cashless transactions is more important than ever.

Solar4Schools uses European technology to develop an off-grid solar system for schools in developing countries (Kenya as the first market) that are struggling with access to affordable and clean energy. It enables schools to access off-grid solar power, save cost, improve health and generate sustainable revenue from a phone charging business.
