Business Strategy and Concept Design

limited access to modern communication and not enough power for work.The Opportunity The lack of electricity infrastructure in Western China and Tibet condemns people to life of poverty With no lights in the evening. economic and social development are stalled .

The Premise Market .Solar technology + a model that provides technical and business training to sellers gives them the tools they . small energy entrepreneurs need access to enabling resources such as technology. capital and a delivery network. Innovation .Small stand-alone renewable technologies can meet the energy needs of rural communities more effectively than waiting for large scale infrastructural development   Growing Enterprise .To take off and become self-sustaining. skills.

Market Analysis ● China produces 65% of all PV Solar Panels The Chinese Government subsidizes 50% of investments in rural solar power projects Solar components are cheaper in China than anywhere else in the world The Last Mile is the Hardest Grid connection is not coming anytime soon for people living in rural areas that already own cell phones and lights. the question is: How can they charge them reliably? ● ● .

scaleable solar chargers for cellular phones and lights Facilitate business opportunities for local entrepreneurs to sell solar charge technology or excess energy Generate employment and income in rural areas .The Solution Generate electricity without linking to the grid through small.
