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.
