Numerous studies have shown a close relationship between power availability and poverty rates. An understanding of the inter-relationships between power availability and societal health is important regions where approximately 5% of the population has access to electricity. This is why we want to help the community provide clean energy especially to the old women and the students including small local hospitals.
