Climate idea

Kenyan Government should be at the fore front to fund climate change innovations: Solar powered car in Kenya.


Samuel Karumbo from Kenya, developed a solar-powered car in a bid to beat the high cost of fuel.
He explained that he always desired to own a car but he was not in a position to afford buying a brand new car.
Being an innovator, Karumbo says he decided to build his car from scratch.
In an interview with Nation, Karumbo explained that before coming up with the idea of building his car, he badly needed one.
However, he said that he didn’t need a regular car but a cost-effective one, thus the invention of his solar-powered vehicle.
“I always wanted a car but because I didn’t have enough money, I just remembered that I’m an innovator. I thought of coming up with a unique car that does not require fuel,” he added.
“The solar panels collect rays from the sun then converts the rays to be electrical energy which are then stored in a battery. Energy stored in the battery can power the car,” he explained.
The car can also be used to charge mobile phones and provide home lighting.
The electrician noted that his biggest challenge was financial constraints at the time. He appealed for support from members of the public and the government.
He hoped the government would recognize his efforts and support the initiative.

                  The Government should look into funding viable clean energy innovations as it also creates employment in the green industry.
