Solar Power Prepaid System in Mexico, electronics assembled in Kadled
In Mexico there are approximately 600,000 homes without electricity service. “Vitaluz” is an initiative that seeks to serve the population of Mexicans who do not have electricity services in their homes or who have inefficient and unattainable alternatives because of their high cost. The company was founded in 2014 by a young Mexican who designed a prepaid system that works by means of solar panels, the electronic assembly is done in Kadled.
``An initiative that seeks to serve the population of Mexicans who do not have electricity services in their homes.``
The first step of each “Vitaluz” project is to identify potential customers, that is, communities without access to electric light. Subsequently, the model is presented to the inhabitants of the community for approval. The next step is to install the system in each home, which contains, among other things: a solar panel, a battery and a small control module to which are connected LED lights and USB charging inputs. The batteries are considered the most expensive system and is part of the contribution made by “Vitaluz”, in this way the beneficiaries do not have to make any expense in the installation and only pay what corresponds to the consumption they make.
