Solarday supports projects for energy independence, such as those already installed in Senegal. A concrete commitment to a bright future that seeks innovative alternatives to give rural families an efficient means of cooking their food and lighting their homes. Africa can take advantage of its abundant sunshine to generate electricity. The electrification of rural areas poses unique challenges for African governments. Unlike homes in urban areas, remote and dispersed rural households are costly and often impractical to connect to the grid. Under the New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD), countries are seeking innovative alternatives to give rural families efficient ways to cook their food and light their homes. Self- sufficient energy sources, such as solar, wind and mini-hydroelectric generators, can help fill this gap.
