Solar for Milk – Creative Solar Solutions

In another edition of Design Hustle, we have the pleasure of introducing a long term Design Hub member, Sizoomu Mwamed, Founder of the startup SolarPipo. The innovative company has recently shifted their focus on providing solar solutions and access to funding to diary farmers and diary cooperatives. The objective is to reduce dependency on unreliable and expensive power bills and have a environmentally cost effective alternative to keep their milk cool and prevent it from getting spoiled. At the moment 20 to 40 percent of the milk produced in Uganda is wasted due to lack of timely cooling.
