“a better quality of life”
Access to affordable energy remains the most impactful path to reducing poverty in most developing parts of the world. Malawi has one of the lowest rates of access to electricity among most of the developing economies. Tony Elumelu eloquently noted in 2015 that “ providing access to electricity for schools, hospitals, businesses and industry is the most single most impactful intervention that can be made to transform the continent of Africa. Access to electricity has tremendous implications for job creation, health, food security, education, technological advancement and overall economic development.”
Recent census report (2018) found that only 37 percent of Malawians living in urban areas and 2 percent living in rural areas have access to electricity. Considering that 82.5 percent of Malawians live in rural areas, the country does not have a realistic path to poverty reduction without solving the energy problem.
RECAPO has embarked on finding meaningful, affordable and sustainable solutions to increasing access to electricity through our solar energy solutions.
