On 6 April 2017 Thomson Reuters Foundation reported:
Access to off-grid solar energy in rural areas of Africa goes beyond lighting up homes -- it also enables people to connect to the wider world and boosts their economic prospects, said the head of one of the continent's biggest solar companies. Home solar systems not only provide electricity to hard-to-reach households, but do so at a far lower cost than using diesel or kerosene for energy. Swapping kerosene for home solar energy can cut African families' spending on lighting to two percent from nine percent of their household income, according to a 2016 report by the Overseas Development Institute (ODI), a UK-based think-tank.
