Great Lakes Energy. We are a solar innovation and distribution enterprise based in Kigali, Rwanda. For the past decade, we have immersed ourselves in understanding and solving the energy challenges of those in East Africa. Today we use that knowledge and experience to design, build, and maintain solar power systems that are more reliable, more sustainable, and more affordable.
Access to reliable electricity supply is absolutely critical for vital healthcare services to be provided to communities. The majority of healthcare facilities in the world, serving 75% of the world’s population, currently suffer from insufficient or intermittent energy supply. The absence of reliable electricity prevents healthcare providers from delivering the services needed to save lives.
We design solar power systems to meet your energy needs.
We study each project thoroughly to acquire a deep understanding of your energy needs. Then we design the solar power system that will reliably serve those energy demands. Over the years, we have installed power systems in orphanages, schools, farms, offices, large homes, and embassies, to name a few examples.
Electricity is needed for lighting, vaccine storage, equipment sterilization and myriad other essential types of medical equipment and services. In the absence of reliable electricity for delivery rooms and facilities, babies in clinics are delivered using only kerosene lamps for light, leading to a higher risk of post-delivery complications.
Despite enormous efforts and resources invested in improving healthcare outcomes for the majority of the world’s population, people are still dying every day due to lack of reliable electricity. According to the WHO, mothers giving birth in the developing world are 300 times more likely to die. The unsafe environment created by the lack of reliable electricity is a major contributor to this disparity. Without light to see at night, the additional training of midwives is also greatly impaired. Without power, modern medical equipment is useless.
Even when grid power is available, the problems persist: According to the WHO, 70% of imported medical equipment in sub-Saharan Africa fails due to “dirty” power in the grid.
