Solar potential

Solar power in Somalia is, in 2012, being considered for development in the near future.[1] Two items that are being made available in seven other African countries in the "Light Years Ahead" program that are being considered are solar lanterns and solar street lights.[2] India has a very successful solar lamp program. A solar lamp costs about the same as a few months of kerosene for a kerosene lamp, and provides many years of light.[3][4]

Most of the energy in Somalia is from charcoal and wood, and 90% of the country does not have access to electricity.[5]
