Solar technology comes to rescue of rural fans in 2018 World Cup tournament

When 2018 World Cup kicks off next month in Russia, many football fans around the globe will be glued to their television sets to catch up with their favourite teams.

In Kenya where electricity supply has been a challenge, many in rural areas normally endure long distance to watch the game in nearby centers where power supply normally ends.

The situation may not be the same come next month following penetration of solar energy in the country. Solar firms have made the penetration of the energy a reality to rural folks with pay-as-you go models that allow people to pay for solar technology in installments through mobile money such as the Safaricom M-Pesa.

Firms such as Azuri, Mobisol have added value in their provisions following growing interests from homes previously cut off from the national power grid.
