SOLAR POWETED MILLS AND OFFGRID SOLAR ENERGY FOR RURAL CAMERO

Project Overview

Over 5,000,000 people or 300,000 households still lack access to electricity, mainly in the rural areas. This project aims to help people in rural Cameroon who are currently using fossil fuels for agro-processing and lighting, replace those energy products and services with clean, renewable energy in the form of solar mills and lighting systems. Most rural communities in Cameroon are dependent on kerosene and candles for lighting and on diesel or difficult manual labor for processing staple foods. Because of this they are often quite vulnerable to fluctuations in fuel prices or potential fuel shortages. This project helps to remove fossil fuel from the equation entirely when it comes to agro-processing, lighting and phone charging, thereby making the energy supply to rural area much greener and adding some stability to the lives of community members.

To solve these problems, CAVOLA is proposing to roll-out community level demonstrations followed by installations of the innovative Solar Agro-Processing Power Stations and either solar minigrids or solar home systems. The roll-out will include at least 100 households, or 5 communities with 20-40 households each. This rollout will be paired with the offering of innovative PAYG financing that allows households to maintain payment structures similar to those they are currently using for energy products and services..

The income from leasing the mills and pay as you go solar energy charges ensures financial viability, scaling up and replication in other communities
