- A solar power provider in Kenya has launched a TV suitable for low-energy use
- People who live off-grid in rural areas can buy the set on a monthly payment plan
- This could change the lives of the 70% of Kenyans who currently do not have a TV
At 7pm, in the village restaurants, the music turns off, and the news turns on.
In this nation of 45 million people -- where many live without electricity -- only 30% of Kenyans have their own television
Now a start-up has developed a 16-inch TV which runs on the sun's rays, bringing communication to the masses.
"There are some 5 million homes in Kenya that don't have electricity," says Jesse Moore, founder of M-KOPA Solar
"And the product most people living off-the-grid want to get is a television."
