Currently, over million people in Africa are still without any form of electricity. Sub-Saharan Africa is the world's most attractive subcontinent for solar power, and the US and many European countries are donating billions of dollars to this industry in order to electrify Africa. Green Africa Renewable Energy specialises in external solar lighting and small wind generators, and offers a solar solution to Southern Africa: all-in-one and semi all- in-one solar street and public area lights. According to SEAD statistics (Super-efficient Equipment and Appliance Deployment Initiative), current conventional street lights (MV or HPS) are the largest source of energy consumption under a municipality's direct control, accounting for up to 40% of electricity consumed by municipalities.
