It is amazing how electricity can change the lives of those in need. In a rural community, a lightbulb can ensure from a proper medical care when the sun is down, to the possibility for kids to study or do homework without the need of, say, kerosene lamps. M-Kopa is a company in East Africa that developed a very cheap solar power system for homes and businesses in rural areas, out of the reach of the electricity network.

That is very true! I'll add that to the concept, thanks very much.
