PRODUCTIVE SOLAR ENERGY FOR DAIRY FARMERS
This project proposed to pilot a solar-powered refrigeration and milk storage solutions for dairy farmers in Western Uganda. Of the country’s 2.5 million small dairy farmers, 85% lack access to affordable cold storage, resulting in spoilage and significant losses in earning potential. OneLamp’s system consists of a 650W solar home system with lithium battery, bundled with LED lights, a television and a 402-litre milk cooler. Each unit provides capacity for up to 10 cows. Dairy farmers can purchase the system through an affordable, mobile-enabled lease-to-own model. EEP Africa financing was committed to enable OneLamp to expand market coverage and broaden its product and service offering.
