Obama's 'Power Africa' Program to Continue

The program is on track to achieve its overall goals and has tripled its initial goals and now aims to generate 30,000 megawatts and make 60 million connections by 2030, says Andrew M. Herscowitz the U.S. government's coordinator for the program.

Two out of three people in sub-Saharan Africa live without access to electricity. Although many of these people will be connected to the electricity grid in the future, some live in remote areas that will never be connected. Power Africa's Beyond the Grid sub-Initiative, and partners like Mobisol, help bring off-grid and small-scale energy solutions to families and businesses across Africa.
