Does Solar Really Work In Kenya? Here’s What You Need to Know
Arguably the most common question solar technology skeptics in Kenya normally ask is does solar really work In Kenya?
The flooding of the Kenyan market with substandard quality portable solar powered lamps had the biggest negative impact on the embracing of solar technology as far back as 12 years ago.
With solar retailers in Kenya focusing on quantity rather than offering the Kenyan market quality, many consumers ended up with substandard solar products making them conclude that solar technology isn’t reliable and doesn’t work.
But this is far from the truth. Solar technology does actually work in Kenya!
Keep in mind that the solar technology 10 or so years ago wasn’t as advanced as it is today.
Battery storage for instance has gradually shifted from the toxic high maintenance lead acid batteries to the gel type no maintenance required batteries that last more than 5 years when programmed by a hybrid inverter to optimal depth of discharge rates that preserve and extend battery life.
