Bringing Power to the people

In the developing world and underserved communities access to renewable energy is limited. Although low cost solutions do exist, they are often flimsy and break, creating a lack of trust in communities about renewable energy source in general.

the problem
Nature and Context

 US energy consumption hit a record high in 2018 in large part due to the growing use of fossil fuels. We need to seek and promote alternatives, especially when serving nations that have to start from scratch. Starting them off on a renewable foot can help the communities in the future. Having renewable energy hubs where people can charge their devices in a safe and reliable way can help promote renewable energy as a resource in developing countries, as well as in already established bu underserved communities.
