Demand Side Subsidies are Required to Make Solar Products Affordable

According to ESMAP, on the current trajectory, 230 million people will not have access to electricity by 2030. Out of this figure, 112 million will be left behind due to affordability constraints. Yet, 2030 is fast-approaching, and some of the gains made through off-grid electrification are being eroded by the COVID-19 pandemic. A survey done during these unprecedented times shows that some households are cutting back on food to make payments for their pay-as-you-go solar systems.
