Solar Home Systems

The Solar Home System is an innovative product providing solar electricity for lighting in a house and charging small electronics like cell phones. The system costs less than what rural households are currently spending on candles, paraffin, dry cell batteries and fees for charging cell phones.

RECAPO Home Solar Systems Project is supported by USADF, World Bank Climate Change Practice and Ministry of Energy in Malawi.

Indigo Solar Home System was first rolled out in Kenya in 2011 and has since been made available in Zambia, Malawi, South Sudan, Uganda, Ethiopia, Zimbabwe and South Africa.
