Entry Summary: An overview of the problem and solution.
Roughly 1.1 billion people have no access to electricity according to International Energy Agency. About 84% living in rural areas and more than 95% reside in sub-Saharan Africa and Asia. Despite a number of off-grid connections in East Africa alone over the past six years, rural electrification has been slow due to challenges of remote monitoring. Monicont is bringing the benefits of clean energy to off-grid customers with its PAYG smart metering technology for solar microgrid systems.
