Bottom up approach to rural electrification

There is a fascinating and inspiring story in the New York Times about how low cost solar cells and LED lighting is beginning to have an impact on some of the 1.5 Billion people in the world who live without electricity.
One of the companies involved Barefoot Power  advocates a commendable bottom up approach to meeting basic needs in the developing world. [I was proud to see that the company has Australian origins].
