L's Solution Ltd
Promoting, distributing and installing clean energy solutions in rural Tanzania
Operating on the model of ‘going where the customers are at the right time’, the enterprise promotes and sells energy-efficient cook stoves, solar lamps and chargers at village trade fairs and general hardware shops. The enterprise also installs larger-scale operations such as water pumps, solar PV panels and electricity installations.
During village trade fairs the enterprise strengthens its distribution network by appointing local entrepreneurs to become dealers and sales agents. The marketing team demonstrates the products to the public. Solar PV panels, efficient cook stoves and solar lamps also strengthen the health of the local environment. Less firewood and charcoal is consumed, decreasing deforestation and carbon dioxide emissions.
L's solution Ltd. is in charge of importing, distributing and selling the solar devices and efficient cook stoves.
Bustani House Initiative organises the distribution and selling of the enterprise’s cookstoves to women groups, ensuring a sustainable supply chain.
Epitome of Excellence Ltd. links the enterprise with rural communities in the Morogoro region, where it assists with capacity building and the distribution of cookstoves.
Care International is a non-profit organisation that helps to organise partnerships with village agents to promote and sell cookstoves.
The 2014 SEED Low Carbon Awards are largely supported by the International Climate Initiative (ICI) of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB).
