Cheap LED lights drive push towards solar in developing countries

Cheap LED lights drive push towards solar in developing countries | Illuminazione led | Scoop.it

Solar prices are dropping; even so, solar power still costs more than just feeding off the electrical grid in most developed countries. But thanks to the falling price and low-energy use of LED lights, solar power is beginning to take hold in developing areas, Kevin Bullis at Technology Review reports.

 

LED lights have been seen as a long-term investment: each light costs more up-front, but over years their energy efficiency will save bucks. But they require far less energy than incandescent bulbs: just a couple watts of energy, as opposed to 20 or 30. And this lower energy requirement can be much more easily fulfilled — for cheaper — than using kerosene, the standard fuel in many developing areas.

 

To beat the up-front costs, several companies are starting to offer long-term payment plans for solar panels and lights, such as charging monthly fees and pay-as-you-go systems.
