The Earth Institute Fellows Symposium: Meeting the Challenges of Sustainable Development in a Changing World

Speaker: Daniel Soto

Millennium Villages Project installations are providing prepaid electricity to over 2000 people in Mali and Uganda. This talk presents data on the power consumption and purchasing patterns gathered from these households. This talk will also discuss the installation of refrigeration units to create income generation and balance the day-night load. We discuss the economic issues around scaling this approach.
