Industry & Marketplace Analysis
One third of the Kenyan population has no electricity. The majority of these people live in rural, remote areas off the main power grid. Many household resorts to kerosene lanterns. And those lanterns create unhealthy fumes, they cast inadequate light, they cost a relative fortune to run, and all too often they cause burns or fires that claim lives.
In the past ten years, global electricity demand has grown by 40 percent. During this time, the use of RE has expanded at ten times the rate of fossil fuels. Experts predict that the world’s electricity demand could triple by 2020, a colossal increase that will be fuelled by the industrialization of developing countries. As a specialty provider and integrator of RE systems designed for developing communities, KAHILL ACRES OF LIFESTYLE will position itself to capitalize on this explosive trend.
Our main target are household in rural areas in Nakuru county with a population of 1.6 million with over 75000 household ready to embrace the solar energy as an alternative source of lighting.
Description of Services
Using a unique business model called Pay-As-You-Go (PAYG) which is a micro payment scheme to sell the solar light kit in rural Kenya we aim to eradicate the dangerous and toxic kerosene lamp and improve lives through solar technology.
The solar kit which consists of 4 lamps and a solar panel cost 100 dollars. A client only needs to pay a deposit of just 20 dollars and get the kit. We do all the installation at his home. The remaining 80 dollars is paid in installment of 10 dollars for 8 months and subsequent electricity is free to the new owner.
PAYG customers are finding that instead of paying $2 to $3 a week for kerosene, they pay less than half that for solar energy. The PAYG concept is a familiar one for hundreds of millions of Africans who purchase mobile phone minutes and kerosene fuel incrementally.
As compare to getting connected to the main power grid where it is required that the clients pays the full amount of 350 dollars connection fee and then wait for 6 to 12 month to get power connected to their house. We are the better option by far.

Solar Electric Kits. Our solar electric systems will be sized to meet the needs of a typical kenya household.
Very few homes have the need to power anything more extravagant than a few fluorescent lights and a radio, and therefore these systems will be small by Western standards.

In order to serve the expected high demand for affordable solar electric systems. All systems will be sold as pre-assembled kits. These kits will be designed to be so simple that end-users will be able to perform the installations themselves. In this way, KAHILL ACRES OF LIFESTYLE will minimize the size of its technical staff.
