    HIP-HOP/R&B STAR AKON ELECTRIFIES AFRICA WITH SOLAR

    1.3 Billion Africans Don’t Have Electricity. Akon Has A Plan To Cut That In Half.

    Lauren C. Williams, July 10, 2015 (ClimateProgress)

    “…Missouri-born Senegalese American [hip-hop and R&B artist and producer Akon] joined five prime ministers representing Benin, Ivory Coast, Mali, Niger, and Togo…[at] a conference for business and political leaders working to develop strategies to address the region’s energy crisis…More than 1.3 billion Africans have no access to electricity; and only 5 percent living in sub-Saharan Africa have electricity…Those staggering figures prompted the certified platinum recording artist to launch the Akon Lighting Africa (ALA) initiative in 2014, which aims to bring solar power to nearly half — 600 million — of the Africans who live without power…[ With a $1 billion credit line from a Chinese solar system provider] ALA has provided solar street lamps, micro-generators, charging stations, and home kits to 14 countries — Benin, Burkina Faso, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Guinea, Kenya, Namibia, Madagascar, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, and Sierra Leone…ALA also teaches citizens how solar power works and how to install arrays through an educational training program…” click here for more
