FLY News: Akon To Provide Electricity To 600 Million People In Africa

Akon To Provide 600 Million Africans With Electricity.

During the launch of a new “Solar Academy,” for Africa, recording artist/producer Akon announced he is planning to provide electricity to 600 million Africans who do not have any electricity. The academy is scheduled to be open this summer in Bamako, the capital of Mali.

The “Solar Academy” will give the African engineers and entrepreneurs the appropriate skills they will need to develop solar power. Also there will be European experts on board to help supply the correct equipment and programs needed for training.

Above is an example of what the good people in African can expect. Solar panels uses the sun’s energy to convert into electricity. Then there is a control device that enables it to power electrical items like lamps, televisions, radios etc. Once that is done the electricity passes through a breaker box to the house’s outlets and then that is when appliances will work.

Sounds like a lot but everything happens in one swift motion. Also since Africa is known to have the most days of sunshine a year, the organization believes that solar energy is the best way to provide electricity to those without it. Akon said “let there be light!” We agree.
