Salessa Group's story

Thabiso is a 63-year-old man who lives in a multi-bedroom house, without access to electricity, with one other family member. Thabiso relies on his grocery shop and struggles with incompetent income and buying multiple fuels. He spends the most amount of his energy expenses on mobile phone charging, gas, candles, paraffin and wood, which costs up to 389 LSL per month. He also spends as much as 1 hour per day, gathering fuel and fulfilling other energy needs like phone charging. Thabiso and the other members of the group in this village each bought the ACE 1 cookstove to help them save the money they spend every month on fuel and also help them access solar electricity for charging their mobile devices any time for free. The ACE 1 clean cook-stove is biomass and solar-powered. For more information on the ACE1 cook stove, please visit www.africancleanenergy.com and Facebook @African Clean Energy
