    Zandspruit entrepreneurs dispel the perception that solar power is too expensive for disadvantaged communities.

    JASA visited Zandspruit in Gauteng to talk to entrepreneurs who use solar energy to power their businesses. There is no electricity in their area but they have discovered that solar energy can be reliable and cost effective.

    Flo uses solar for lighting and cutting hair in his salon while a day care centre no longer has to expose children to the dangers of open fires. Their E-Power electronic charging device centre is also used to power cell phones and batteries for other hawkers in the area.
