Lighting & Energy Efficiency Application Program, (L.E.E.A.P) for Urban, Rural & Underserved Communities

The “Lighting & Energy Efficiency Application Program (L.E.E.A.P)” for Urban, Rural & Underserved Communities is a revolutionary Lighting, Energy Conservation and cost-effective Electricity Delivery package guaranteed to transform urban, rural and underserved communities into safe and habitable dwellings compliant with a 21st Century living environment.

The L.E.E.A.P package is borne out of the need to appraise energy supply to our urban and rural areas, not from the supply angle alone where generation, transmission & distribution all come from one source but also from the demand end. The micro-unit managed and off-grid solutions offer the surest path to achieving this targets and ultimately reaching the rural and underserved communities across the country.

As a basic feature, the “L.E.E.A.P” combines electricity conservation via the replacement of non- energy efficient appliances with energy efficient ones in homes and businesses, delivery of lighting and security surveillance technologies in urban and rural settings and the installation of cost-effective off-grid renewable energy solutions to underserved communities.

The L.E.E.A.P can either be implemented in conjunction with other programs by VERYSOL ENERGY for homes & businesses or via a Public Private Partnership (PPP) Rural Electrification model for mid to large sized communities.
