Activist Session: Production of Solar Lamps in Africa

Event large 4b8aa978adbb7c8e80151f5a83c6782a12e763374ae3a042a55e7e626a64d93b

Solux started already in the early 1994 to develop concepts in direction of local production. The result of these deliberations was the “Solux Workshop Concept”. Within this concept a new type of solar lamp was developed which could be delivered in the form of a kit, ready for assembly in cooperation with a local partner.
All the components are sent to the local assembly site. These components are then assembled in a dedicated workshop. These proceedings provide the chance to substitute components with local content over a period of time.
The benefits of this type of work include a high degree of awareness- and capacity building, practical training in an electrician’s work, an increased consciousness of what quality means and certainly improved self-esteem and, last but not least, a product comes out of this process: a functioning solar lamp for people living off-grid.
