Cheap always winds up being expensive, I always say...when you try to cut corners, or can't afford corners, there are repercussions.
SELCO-India's profile on Cooper-Hewitt's site points this truth out...if you can't afford a good system, you pay dearly for a cheap one. SELCO indicates on their website that they help finance the purchase of these solar systems, enabling people to wean themselves from petroleum generators or car batteries for their day-to-day electricity needs. it's cleaner, but also cheaper over time. This shows again the power access to credit has to transform people's lives.
