BI Filler Photo-01Nearly 25% of the world’s population still burns the midnight oil after sunset. Another 20% gets fortunate only for a few hours a day or several times a week when the grid to their houses finally carries power. The lack of electricity is not only a strong impeding force against development that prevents people from getting access to modern communication and other resources, it deprives them of very basic amenities like education, lighting and healthcare. This project will work towards creating ultra affordable electricity access for the 2.6 billion underserved people in the world by implementing a novel technology combined with innovative distribution channels and financial schemes.
