Afstor Solar Home and Cooker System

 

The Challenge in Africa

An open fire is highly energy inefficient and requires a lot of wood. Family of 5 consumes 4000 kg of wood a year producing 6400 kg of CO₂.

840 million people in sub-Saharan Africa do not have access to electricity .

How does Afstor solve the problem?

Afstor Solar Home System produces clean energy for cooking, lighting and appliances with 100% solar power and zero CO₂ emissions. It enables an African family to leap to the 21st century in energy use.

During five years usage, one Afstor Solar Home System reduces CO₂ emissions equal to 260,000 km driven by car. You can track the usage hours of the purchased system and the resulting CO₂ compensation on a tracking website. 

Green Living Moment project linked to Afstor Solar Home systems in Zambia also regreens the degraded areas around the communities through education, tree nurseries and tree growing.

When you buy an Afstor Solar Home system to a family in Zambia, we provide you with information on the usage and eliminated carbon emissions on a monthly basis – one cooker saves about x CO2 equivalents monthly. You can use these saved emissions to offset your emissions at home or business.

Our goal is to put an end to the unnecessary use of firewood and massively help in the reforestation of Africa, mitigate climate change and provide a decent life for the rural population in Sub-Saharan Africa.

The Afstor Solar Home system includes delivery to the end user in Africa and a tracking website. The Buyer will receive a monthly report from the tracking website on usage hours of the acquired system and the eliminated CO2 emissions.

Currently purchased and delivered cookers will also be part of the Green Living Moment (GLM) forestry and education project, which is funded by the Finnish ministry for foreign affairs.
