Isn’t it time everyone shared the same basic human rights?
We see access to sustainable energy as a basic human right. Not a luxury. Not a nice-to-have. Not something for the future; something for now. A straight-up pre-condition for development. Because access to electrical light and power means access to education, to communication, to income-generating opportunities, to self-belief, to a better future.
The sun is the world’s greatest natural energy resource. It’s abundant, it’s sustainable, and it’s available everywhere. It’s the solution for everyone who needs power but doesn’t have access to electricity. So let’s use it.
