Solar milling can help change how essential milling services are delivered in rural areas. Small or micro-milling machines can create a highly decentralised network of essential milling services and are a viable option for smallholder farmers. They have the potential to increase rural productivity, generate income and offset the time spent travelling to and waiting for large diesel mills.

Agsol was established in 2016 to develop solar-powered milling machines that can viably serve small communities, improve labour efficiencies, keep more money in rural economies, and catalyse access to higher tier energy services. The company has its operating base in Kenya and a facility in China where primary product research and development happens.
