Kenya is one of the global frontrunners when it comes to embracing electric mobility. Solutions Africa, a company focused on providing sustainable and affordable transport solutions in Africa, recently introduced electric tuk-tuks in Kenya. This new mode of transportation has already been tested and proven successful in other countries around the world, but this is the first time it has been implemented in Kenya. In this blog post, we will take a look at how the introduction of electric tuk-tuks could revolutionize transport in Kenya and beyond. We’ll explore how they work, how they’re being used, and what potential benefits they could bring to the people of Kenya.
Solutions Africa is a social enterprise that provides electric tuk-tuks in Kenya
Solutions Africa is a social enterprise that provides electric tuk-tuks in Kenya. The company was founded in 2015 by Kenyan entrepreneurs Johnnie and Julia Mugadi, with the aim of providing an affordable, sustainable and reliable mode of transport for Kenyan commuters.
Since its launch, Solutions Africa has been working tirelessly to promote the use of electric tuk-tuks in Kenya, and has so far succeeded in deploying over 100 vehicles across the country. The company’s ultimate goal is to replace all petrol and diesel-powered tuk-tuks with electric ones, in order to reduce emissions and help combat climate change.
In addition to providing electric tuk-tuks, Solutions Africa also offers training and support to drivers, as well as financing options to help them purchase their own vehicles. The company has also partnered with local businesses and NGOs to provide employment opportunities for youth in the tuk-tuk industry.
So far, Solutions Africa’s electric tuk-tuks have been extremely well received by Kenyan commuters, who appreciate the clean energy source and the fact that they are much cheaper to operate than petrol or diesel vehicles. With continued support from the government and private sector, we believe that Solutions Africa will continue to play a leading role in promoting clean energy solutions in Kenya.
The company’s goal is to reduce emissions and traffic congestion in Nairobi
In recent years, the Kenyan capital of Nairobi has experienced rapid population growth and urbanization. This has led to increased traffic congestion and air pollution. In an effort to address these issues, Solutions Africa has introduced a fleet of electric tuk-tuks.
The company’s goal is to reduce emissions and traffic congestion in Nairobi. The electric tuk-tuks are fitted with GPS tracking devices, which allow the company to track their movements and optimize routes. This helps to reduce travel times and fuel consumption.
In addition, the electric tuk-tuks are equipped with solar panels, which provide power for the vehicles’ lights and accessories. This helps to further reduce emissions and save on energy costs.
The introduction of electric tuk-tuks is just one of the ways that Solutions Africa is working to create a more sustainable future for Kenya.
