Ngole Collins, Cameroon

“In our centre here we recharge motorcycle, car and telephone batteries thanks to solar power. These are used as power supply when there is power outage. … We advise customers to recharge their batteries everyday to avoid unpleasant surprises. When it will start raining heavily here … we have power outages because sometimes it rains for over two weeks incessantly. The sun becomes scarce and people have no choice but to deal with the traditional source of power: charcoal, wood and kerosene fuel.”
