For those currently unconnected to the grid, biomass, kerosene, candles and batteries are prohibitively expensive, unsafe and unsustainable power sources trapping communities in a cycle of poverty.
Winch’s RPU provides sustainable, wired access to power for up to 40% less than what rural communities currently spend on energy to date. Moreover due to the scalable nature of the RPU communities are not limited to the amount of power they can access which cannot be said about solar home kits.
Provides access to water on a localised basis by powering electric borehole pumps for centralised water supply. This avoids the need for women and young girls spending 480 million hours a year collecting water.
Winch Energy’s solutions enhance communication, which has huge implications for sharing important health, education and business information.
This empowers communities to become self-sufficient, autonomous economies and opens up an ever developing positive loop, where greater access to power leads to increased opportunities for education, commerce, employment and wealth.
The result is enabled communities that are healthier, better educated, more prosperous and better able to maintain a rural life and thus avoid the city migration.
