Kolane's story

Kolane is a 24-year-old man who lives in a multi-bedroom house with 5 other family members including 1 child. Kolane relies on self employment but struggles with insufficient income and buying multiple fuels. He spends the most amount of his energy expenses on electricity and gas, which costs up to LSL630 per month. He also spends as much as 1 hour per day gathering fuel and fulfilling other energy needs like phone charging. Kolane bought the ACE 1 cookstove to help him and his family save the money spent 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
