  • What is the subsidized price that you are selling the Little Sun for? How many households are you aiming to reach in Kasese by when?

    • Hello Maj, we sell it at 15,000 SHS and JEEP is targeting 2,000 household in the next three years.

JEEP partnered with Energy Nord - a utility company from Denmark - to implement the Lighting Africa project. The project aims at improving livelihood of people especially those living in off grid areas through provision of clean light from solar energy thus substituting the dangerous kerosene lamps. The project aims at providing solar lanterns at a subsidized rate and creating awareness about solar energy. Beneficiaries are equipped with basic knowledge about the usability and maintenance of solar lamps. - Visit Projectpage
