(Ecofin Agency) - Women-led Solar Sister partners with US energy company Palmetto to connect 10 million people in Africa over the next five years, the company announced this week.
According to Katherine Lucey (pictured), MD of Solar Sister, this partnership with a company with similar goals in terms of access to clean energy, will democratize sustainable energy among grassroots populations.
“I am particularly grateful to work with Palmetto to give their customers the opportunity to share their commitment to clean energy with African communities. This partnership is a fantastic example of how two organizations working with a common goal and shared values are able to achieve something bigger,” the manager said.
In the US, Palmetto commits to helping American households to migrate towards solar energy by easing access to information, financing, and management & monitoring software for their facilities.
Founded in 2016, Solar Sister has launched more than 4,000 entrepreneurs who have provided eco-friendly energy and furnaces to more than two million people in Nigeria and Tanzania.
