Unique African solar programme wins recognition
Soluxe Solar has honoured Eight19’s IndiGo "Pay as You Go" solar programme with its Solar Flare award.
Eight19’s IndiGo "Pay As You Go" solar programme allows rural villagers to generate their own power via a photovoltaic panel and battery pack. They can then purchase the produced energy for as little as USD1 a week.
This unique programme has caught the eye of Soluxe Solar, a Connecticut-based solar company. The IndiGo program receives this week's Soluxe "Solar Flare" – a weekly honour the company bestows on an individual or company making great strides in the world of solar advancement.
"Each day we are seeing solar develop and create opportunities never before thought possible," says Soluxe Solar CEO Jeffrey Mayer. "The creativity behind the IndiGo program, which not only has tremendous potential to improve the lives of people in these remote locations but also have a positive impact on our environment as well is fantastic. We felt this was the perfect choice for this week's Solar Flare."
