Editor’s Note: There are a lot of companies and organizations bringing solar power and LEDs to off-grid areas of the developing world. But there need to be a lot. 1.3 billion people lack electricity worldwide. Many of the people are in Africa, so it’s always heartening to see news of startups, big corporations, and nonprofits bringing solar power to off-grid Africa. Here’s a story of all three doing so, via Solar Love:
