HERi has developed an innovative model for renting solar lanterns. For less than 200 ariary per day (around four euro cents), customers can rent a solar lantern that is charged in the kiosks during the day and delivered to their home before nightfall. As a result, people without access to reliable energy can benefit from clean, reliable and affordable lights – all by making daily micro-payments, just like they were already doing to buy candles or kerosene.
