Solar for the Rural / solar products for off-grid

SunSawang is a social enterprise providing solar home systems and lanterns for rural villages along the Thailand-Myanmar border. The enterprise empowers the local through hiring and training village technicians and salespersons to provide solar products and after-sales service. Previously, these villages, located on remote forested mountains, did not have basic grid-connected electricity. While the villagers are paying off the equipment with 5-year service contract in an affordable amount. This innovative approach increases the sustainability of the project and helping the villagers to earn more income and improving their living conditions.
