The Mobile Solar-powered Kiosks  Keep Rwanda's Cell-Phones Connected

“Shiriki hubs” are mobile solar-powered kiosks that have been designed by African Renewable Energy Distributor (ARED) to empower people, who have smartphones or tablets, to have access to electricity and the internet. They are powered by 100 W solar panels and not only can charge up to 30 cell-phones at one time but also can serve as Wi-Fi hotspots.
By paying only 5 cents, users can fully charge their cell-phones. Another 3 cents for using 10 minutes of Wi-Fi should be paid at the kiosks, thanks to dropping down the cost of solar-generated electricity.
The other interesting point of the device emerges when you know that only 34% of Rwandans have access to electricity and there were 72 cell-phone subscriptions per 100 people in Rwanda, in 2017 according to the World Bank.
Is this a suitable solution for people in other areas, where access to reliable electricity is restricted? {@aredgroup}
