Solar With a Mission

Offset Solar is proud to partner with SolarAid to provide access to solar lights in Uganda, Malawi and Zambia

Offset Solar is proud to partner with SolarAid to provide access to solar lights in Uganda, Malawi and Zambia.


The Problem.

598 million people in Africa alone have no access to electricity. Without electricity families have no clean source of light, leaving millions to rely on expensive and dangerous alternatives.

Many use homemade kerosene lamps which are a poor source of light; they emit toxic black smoke, eat up to 15% of a family’s income and are extremely hazardous.

Children can’t study at night, the working day ends prematurely and indoor air pollution presents a serious health hazard.

The Solution.

With a solar light, everything changes. These little lamps are safe, clean and affordable. They give off hours of light in the evening so families can earn, learn and feel safe after dark. Just one lamp can transform the fortunes of an entire family and is the first step on an energy ladder to full electrification.

They are not the answer to all life’s energy problems, but they are available right now, and will ensure the very poorest can begin to develop and prosper without having to wait for a grid system that may never come.

  How We Help.

Our partnership with Solar-Aid is designed to sell lights at a ‘fair market rate’ so that local entrepreneurs and other agencies can join the market and make a profit. We do this by taking a hit on the distribution costs.

It costs a lot of money to get these lights into remote communities and educate people about their benefits. This is where your donation comes in, covering the cost of getting these lights to the people that need them most.
