When we started BuffaloGrid, we looked at pedal power as a potential solution. But after running trials in Uganda, we realised this was not going to work. It was not inclusive, as it required our agents to cycle for hours in the heat. So we switched to solar power.
Solar power is a clean, sustainable solution that is safe, unlike fossil fuel, and doesn't require human exertion. Our customers also mostly live in countries close to the equator, where solar insolation is high.
