Solarkiosk opened in Kenya – Another milestone of the “Tackling climate change together” initiative

2017/12/07

The joint initiative “Tackling climate change together” by Munich Re and ERGO has reached another milestone in cooperation with our partner SOLARKIOSK. The first initiative-financed E-HUBB, a photovoltaic kiosk, has started operations in Migori County in Kenya. E-HUBBs provide electricity independent of the power grid, thus replacing the usual diesel-powered generators and their harmful emissions. The electricity generated allows people to power their fridges, recharge their phones, use the internet and – thanks to the E-HUBB’s powerful storage capacity – even do their school homework by electric light after dark. Another four E-HUBBs are set to be installed in the coming weeks.
