03.05 Domestic and public lighting
Describe existing domestic and public lighting facilities in the project area.
How do people light their homes, inside and outside? Describe each means of lighting used, the number of hours each day these means are used, the type of fuel used, the amount of fuel used, and the cost of the fuel used.
Give an estimate of the average total monthly family expenditure for lighting. How much is this expressed as a percentage of their total usable income?
Under the project:
Users (especially women) may obtain micro-credit loans if they need PV lighting systems to increase their productivity in the evening.
Families later able to pay for their own PV Home Systems will do so individually under a cooperative purchasing scheme operated by the Cooperative Local Development Bank set up as part of the project.
Lighting for study purposes is provided under the project.
Have the people in the project area expressed any specific requirements with regard to public lighting facilities? What are the purposes of these facilities? How important are they to the people in the project area?
