Ripples of Solar System Adoption in South Sudan

In the rural areas of South Sudan, interest and expectations for solar systems are growing day by day. These areas are still underdeveloped in terms of electricity networks, with no concrete plans for improvement in sight. Amidst this, solar systems are seen as a beacon of hope, being anticipated as a new source of power.

However, along with the hope comes anxiety. When people see the solar systems installed by their neighbors and realize the reality that, while they can certainly get light at night, running a fan for a long time is challenging, it takes a considerable amount of courage to invest in the installation of a solar system, which requires a significant investment.

Still, electricity is essential to improve the quality of life. Therefore, people are seeking solar systems that offer better performance. Many of our customers are verifying the performance of solar systems based on information from those who have already installed them.
In Africa, systems using solar panels of about 100W are commonly seen. However, these systems make it challenging to achieve the electrified lifestyle that many people hope for.

Recently, we have been receiving an increasing number of requests for the installation of our solar systems not only from people with high incomes but also from people with relatively low incomes. This might be a testament to the strong will to improve their lives, which is spreading beyond the disparity in income.

The ripple effect of solar system installation in South Sudan is likely to continue to spread.
