Women-inspired, Women-led enterprise
We create opportunities for women to become ElleSolaire entrepreneurs, supplying affordable breakthrough technologies to even the remotest areas of West Africa.
150 million people live in energy poverty with no access to electricity. Yet, in West Africa, they are surrounded by an abundant source of natural energy: sunlight. Simple, proven, affordable technologies exist which harness the power of the sun to generate energy for domestic use. What is missing is a distribution channel for these products.
By investing in an empowered women-led distribution network, we create a supply chain for products like solar lamps, home solar systems and clean cookstoves, that otherwise cannot reach those who most need them.
