Every country, both developing and developed need access to modern energy. Countries are increasingly moving towards the use of affordable modern energy for the growth of their economic bases.
Across the globe, the disadvantaged people live on less than two US Dollars (200 shillings) a day, whereas their families’ energy costs may run to more than 15 US Dollars (1500 shillings) a month.
