Promoting Solar

Project Needs and Beneficiaries

Grid supplied electricity is limited in Sierra Leone and many organizations and businesses are forced to rely on problematic diesel and fuel powered generators for their electricity supply. This not only contributes to environmental issues but also is a massive expense to organizations operating in the region.

Objectives

EFO's objective is to support efforts to mainstream solar and other alternative energy technologies in the region. These projects not only promote the use of renewable, clean power generating options but also help raise vital core funds for the organization, that support its project activities in the region.

Activities

Energy For Opportunity works with a cross section of partners, including individual donors, International Non-Governmental Organizations, Government and private sector entities. We support their project work by providing technical guidance and installation services, ensuring that their activities are implemented to international standards for safety and quality.  

Potential Long Term Impact

Promoting solar through these types of projects will help to shift electricity generation away from existing modes towards safe, reliable and clean energy supply. By expanding the utilization of solar power, it will allow for the technology to gain acceptance and reach a broad cross section of residents, providing a vital alternative energy supply.
