Let There Be Light: First SolarKiosk Opens in Ethiopia

Let There Be Light: First SolarKiosk Opens in Ethiopia

The Graft firm is currently looking for investors to fund the next round of production and installation, and has made that prospect a bit easier by keeping setup costs relatively low. The creators designed the SolarKiosk as a light-weight structure that can be “flat-packed” as a kit of parts, which would then be assembled on-site using local materials and workers. In extremely remote locations, the SolarKiosk “kit” is light enough to be strapped to a donkey (That ‘s in your press release? Really!?), so you’d have to assume helicoptering a kit in is also a possibility…. I’d still pay good money to see someone try to strap one of these to a donkey, though.
