First batch of Sol-banks arrive in Uganda

Sticky Post March 23, 2022 By

We are excited to announce the first batch of Sol-banks have arrived in Uganda and are being distributed over the next few days.

The Sol-banks (H2G by JUA Energy) are a good quality Small Home Solar (SHS) system that uses LiFePO4 battery cells enabling a longer product lifecycle which is better for the environment and the user.

Small home solar systems have the potential to revolutionise the way families in Uganda access and use energy. In a country where electricity supply is unreliable, expensive, and not accessible to all, small home solar systems offer a range of benefits that can improve the lives of Ugandan families in numerous ways.

Here are some of the benefits of small home solar for families in Uganda:

  • Cost-Effective

Small home solar systems are a cost-effective way to generate electricity for your home. They are an ideal option for families in Uganda who cannot afford to pay for grid electricity or who live in remote areas where it is difficult to access electricity. With a small home solar system, families can generate their electricity, reducing their dependence on expensive grid electricity.

  • Improved Health and Safety

In Uganda, many families rely on kerosene lamps, candles, and open fires for lighting and cooking. These sources of energy are not only expensive, but they are also hazardous to health and safety. Small home solar systems offer a cleaner and safer alternative, reducing the risk of fires and respiratory problems associated with traditional energy sources.

  • Increased Productivity

Small home solar systems can significantly increase the productivity of families in Uganda. With reliable access to electricity, families can operate small businesses, charge their phones and laptops, and study in the evenings, improving their quality of life and increasing their economic opportunities.

  • Environmental Sustainability

Small home solar systems are an environmentally sustainable source of energy, as they produce no carbon emissions. In Uganda, where deforestation is a significant problem, small home solar systems offer a cleaner and greener alternative to traditional energy sources that rely on wood and charcoal.

  • Energy Independence

Small home solar systems provide families in Uganda with energy independence. With a reliable source of electricity, families can avoid the often-erratic supply of grid electricity, which can be subject to blackouts and power outages. This independence is especially important during emergencies, such as natural disasters or pandemics, where access to energy can be a matter of life and death.

In conclusion, small home solar systems offer numerous benefits for families in Uganda, including cost-effectiveness, improved health and safety, increased productivity, environmental sustainability, and energy independence. With the right investment and support, small home solar systems can play a significant role in improving the lives of Ugandan families, reducing poverty, and promoting sustainable economic development.

A great start to the project!!

We will continue to grow our user base and help provide those living off-grid with a basic requirement of light and power.
