Many communities in sub-Saharan Africa rely on diesel-powered milling equipment to process important staple crops. Solar-powered electric mills offer a reliable and sustainable alternative to expensive and polluting diesel-powered mills. This report uses data collected from field testing results of solar mills in East Africa to analyze the market requirements for solar mills and assess their commercial viability. Its findings present opportunities for improving solar milling technology and recommendations for how to close the commercial viability gap between diesel and solar.
