Blockchain technology to boost power access in rural areas


What you need to know:

  • The new smart-grid solar technology is being piloted in the village by Hivos East Africa.
  • The micro-grid is backed by blockchain technology which keeps all the data on power distribution and purchase.
  • Details of all the locals using the system are fed and secured using blockchain technology.
  • The seller can then check the amount of electricity he sold or the amount of money he has made in a month.

For rural communities across the country where electricity is either non-existent or costly and intermittent, off-grid solar technology is the answer.
