Solar Bora improves the lives of the people who need it the most. We do this by providing clean and affordable energy, enabling our customers to cook safely with induction cooking, study at night with LED-lights, charge your phones and anything else you might want. The electricity is generated with reliable solar cell technology and stored in environmental friendly batteries. The Solar Bora unit gives you the on-grid service — off-grid!
Sustainable development for empowerment
1.1 billion of people in Africa and Asia lack access to a power distribution grid. That is 14 % of the world population. On top of that, there is an additional billion people who are connected to the electricity grid, but are suffering from an unreliable supply.
The SolarBora Next Generation Household System directly impacts several of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
The Solar Bora Way
Access to electricity is crucial for the economic development and a key to escape poverty.
Without electricity, people are depending on other energy sources such as kerosene, charcoal, candles or other fossil fueled solutions. These solutions are not only bad for the environment in terms of global warming and deforestation, but they are also often harmful for the family because of the fumes and the risk of fire. On top of that they are expensive.
Most people without power distribution lines are living in rural areas. The extension of the grid gets expensive outside the urban areas, and an offgrid solution might be more cost effective.
This is where we come in!
Solar cells are a cost effective alternative without compromising the environment or the personal safety, and the SolarBora Next Generation Household System will be powerful enough to even solve the problem of cooking with wood or charcoal.
With Solar Bora there will not be any need to buy expensive kerosene or charcoal, or spend hours on fetching wood. This will free time to do other things during the day, and even provide the opportunity to keep doing things after sunset in the light from the safe light bulbs.
Bintu has a big family, she cooks food for 13 people every day. Every lunch and dinner takes around 3 hours to cook, and she normally uses charcoal and fire wood. As long as it is not raining she cooks outside, to reduce the problems from the smoke. She says that it hurts her eyes and makes her nose runny. When testing the SolarBora unit Bintu cooked beans and meatballs with vegetables.
“I have a big family, every day I cook for 13 people. This takes a lot of time, especially during rainy season when the fire wood and charcoal is wet and it is difficult to light the fire. With SolarBora I save a lot of time, and it is easier!”
Issata Keita is 21 years old and lives together with her husband, her brother in law, his wife and her mother- and father in law. She is now expecting her first child. Every day she wakes up at 3 am to get water, since the water is cut during daytime.
Issata Keita cooks the food for the family, she normally uses both charcoal and fire wood. When testing the SolarBora unit she cooked both porridge for her father in law, and a stew with meat and potato for the rest of the family.
“It is good to not have all the problems with the smoke when using the induction cooker instead of fire wood and charcoal”
Mariam lives together with her husband, her two kids and her sister in law in suburban Bamako. Mariam has high blood pressure and her kids has asthma, so to cook with fire is a problem for all of them. She normally cooks with gas to minimize these problems, but when there is a shortage of gas she needs to use charcoal. With a SolarBora unit this won’t be necessary.
“The possibility to also use the unit for business – for example making and selling ice – is perfect. I could also use the electricity to iron the clothes of the family, that would have saved me 6000 CFA only this month. ”
(6000 CFA ≈ 11 USD)
Alice is 70 years old and lives together with her husband outside of Bamako. Since they are a small family they never cook bigger amouts of food, but the cost for fuel is still high. Every month they pay around 15 500 CFA (28 USD) for charcoal and gas. Alice estimates that a meal normally takes two hours to cook, but with the SolarBora unit it goes a lot faster!
“It goes so fast to cook with the induction cooker, and the food tastes better!”
“Yes, it is fun to use the induction stove, people normally visit and we show them how it works”
