Seth C. Addo-Yobo replied to Yotam Ariel's discussion Article: 'Good news: the hype of solar lanterns seems to come to an end!'
"Ognen: I like the way you are thinking this through but there is a cultural component that is at work here.  For example in Ghana, there are enough middle income and upper middle income people who could benefit from SHS.  However, they…"

"Lee:  You are right on point.  In Africa, the challenge is financing.  Even the upper middle class are reluctant to use credit cards even though they have it.   People still have "cash and carry" mentality.  This…"

"Salvatore: Thank you for adding some background "meat" to the conversation.  Now I have a better understanding as to why he was attacking the solar lanterns so heavily.  There is always an agenda somewhere.  "

Seth C. Addo-Yobo replied to Yotam Ariel's discussion Article: 'Good news: the hype of solar lanterns seems to come to an end!'
"The article does address some of the condescending stereotypical photo ops.  I can understand where he is coming from there.  But the reality on the ground is that people can only afford the flashlights and lanterns.  Getting people…"

Seth C. Addo-Yobo commented on Sun-Connect News's blog post World first solar lantern with 300 Lumen brightness
"Great work but the problem is that from your chart at the 300 lm it appears that one gets about 100 minutes.  I think the consumers will get excited if it is lasting for five or six hours.  Otherwise, it might be a tough sell.  "

Seth C. Addo-Yobo replied to Yotam Ariel's discussion Kenya puts VAT 16% on solar products - beginning September 2013

Seth C. Addo-Yobo replied to Yotam Ariel's discussion A nice visual way to present solar home system kits
"The presentation looks quite smooth.  I like it.    Ultimately, the customer will want to know the price and if it can run a spacecraft:-)"

Seth C. Addo-Yobo commented on Yotam Ariel's blog post Is it official that ToughStuff bankrupt? Or are they just restructuring?
"I think you correct about sharing failures.  In my opinion, this industry is tough because most organizations are looking to the village.  The village approach sounds good and might get some public money initially but in the long run the…"

Seth C. Addo-Yobo replied to Rolland Zhang's discussion How much cost for a solar Lamp in rural area.
"I think my point is that the middle and upper middle class in many of the countries we are talking about do not see buying solar lantern with charging capability as equivalent to the purchase of an automobile.  For that crowd, the question is…"

Seth C. Addo-Yobo replied to Rolland Zhang's discussion How much cost for a solar Lamp in rural area.
"I would like to add something.  Admittedly, it will take a long time get the consumer to feel comfortable spending on solar lanterns.  However, whether it is Africa or South Asia, the solar lanterns are in fact needed by the upper middle…"

Seth C. Addo-Yobo replied to Shuangyi Qian's discussion Country Data: Ghana
"The report is well done.  However, the real issue is that the average Ghanaian, including the wealthy, feel that 7 months is too long to get a return.  Shocking but true.  Keeping it simple, a QUALITY solar lantern will sell from…"
