ÉnergieRich is a social enterprise with the goal of reducing inequalities of energy access

and technological deficits in communities by providing access to locally

produced, low cost, durable solar energy products, computers and associated technology.

ÉnergieRich’s initial pilot project in Burkina Faso, provides a full solutions approach, introducing locally

assembled solar products and technology at a lower cost than imported manufactured

goods. The production of economically viable and socio-cultural appropriate technology

produced and sold by the local population, provides economic, educational, technological

and health stimulus for rural areas in Burkina Faso, West Africa.

 The project is designed to integrate a wide range of community members in the process of local small scale manufacturing, sales, distribution, installation, maintenance and customer support.  It includes  participation by local

government and schools in product testing and development.
