Aijay, a young Nigerian woman
needs several jobs to survive. Without access to power and to the internet, she has no chance to continue her education. Due to the lack of electric power, there is no economic growth, no jobs, no education, and thus no future for young people.
Air conditioners are power guzzlers.
An air conditioner uses as much power as 120 LED lamps or 30 floor fans. In many homes, refrigerators consume 80% of the electricity without their owners being aware of it. Insulation against the heat is hardly considered.
Inadequate power supply
Electricity is often not paid and highly subsidized power is wasted by the rich. To avoid financial losses, utilities are forced to switch off the grid.
