GENNEX - Bringing Solar Power Technology To Rural Jamaica

ABOUT THIS PROJECT

GeNNex is a renewable energy company that has been working in rural Africa for the last 12 months, empowering the lives of people with no power. The high-cost rural electrification and a misunderstanding of renewable power in Jamaica are big problems. There are still approximately 40,000 homes in Jamaica that still have no power. This project will fuse both technical and entrepreneurship education around solar energy into a single program. Participants will learn how to assemble solar lanterns and will gain vital transferable business skills which they can use to earn money as an entrepreneur selling solar products.

ABOUT GENNEX

Gennex was founded on the Virgin Media Pioneer platform by international award-winning social entrepreneurs and engineers.
