Lease-to-Own Biogas

Pilot project of Lease-to-Own Biogas will enable smallholder farming families to turn animal waste into clean, healthy and reliable renewable energy for cooking. The farmers pay for the biogas as they use it and eventually they will have a chance to own the system. This business model overcomes the primary barriers to widespread adoption of biogas in Africa. Aim is to install 240 biogas systems.
