Over 2,000 clean cookstoves have been deployed to date as a part of a pilot program by Green Cross Ghana. The cookstoves are paid for with an impact investing loan that is paid back by cookstove recipients using mobile phone payments. We’re actively seeking to pilot additional impact investing models and consortium building for solar energy in West Africa.
As a next step, we’re going to tie together some of these programmes with an international solar report card that includes both energy access and grid resiliency, showing how different countries measure up, along with actions that are needed for improvement.
We’re seeking help from technical experts who are interested in serving as volunteers to contribute to the Solar Report Card, please contact us firstname.lastname@example.org.
