In agricultural based economies of sub-Saharan Africa, grains (particularly maize) are typically the staple food crop. Off grid grain milling has the potential to increase farming efficiency, increase farmer revenue, and promote food security. Typically mills in off-grid areas are fuel powered and as a result have high operating costs and the potential for negative environmental impacts (e.g. pollution and GHG emissions from diesel generators). Where off grid (solar) mills...READ MORE
