Electricity is important for lighting homes, factories, hospitals, schools and other areas of importance for human life.
It is also useful for operating appliances, entertainment, running of machines, cooking, keeping medicines cool, and in advanced use in trains, airplanes, and even some cars.
Off-grid communities also need electricity for charging their phones for communication, operating simple appliances like the radio and TV sets, and for students, they need the power to increase their time to study.
Rural folks, like their urban counterparts, need lighting to help them spend more time undertaking productive work.
All these illustrate the importance of electricity–much so renewable power—towards transforming society.
