BBOXX and EDF Group have launched a program to power a Togolese village. The project will bring power to the entire village of Sikpe-Afidegnon through the use of solar energy.
It runs streetlights, houses, schools and shops, transforming the village in southern Togo, whose only previous access to electricity was from generators that ran on expensive and polluting fuel oil.
Sikpe-Afidegnon is the first Togolese village to benefit from BBOXX’s new off-grid system, which the company hopes to expand across Togo. For now the power is free, but residents will have to start paying market rates in a few months.
