About Solego 2.0
Especially in rural Africa, many people and their businesses are cut off from the energy grid. When electricity is needed, many resort to environmentally harmful diesel generators. »Solego« is the smart alternative. The modular solar system from Solarworx uses what is available in abundance: sunlight. This feeds the batteries, which supply numerous devices with green energy.
The jury justified its decision as follows:
»The smart, modular Solego 2.0-powerbank from Solarworx is based on a sustainable design approach and offers a much more ecological alternative to electricity from fossil-fuelled generators, especially in hot regions.«
