The influx of substandard solar products in Tanzania has a lot of negative impacts on the efforts of bringing alternative energy to the rural off-grid communities.
Tanzania Renewable Energy Association (TAREA) is currently working with Tanzania Bureau of Standards to contain the situation. On other hand we are educating the communities how to identify poor products.
We have developed a clip to educate end users. Watch at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BBT7Wi-DLjo
Other ideas are welcome.
Yes, Mathew, you are quite right. Hope you may join hands together with your standard bureau to prevent those bad quality lamps to come inside.
