The World Bank estimates that roughly 1.6 billion people?nearly one out of every four people on the planet?do not have regular access to electricity. This form of energy poverty disproportionately afflicts people living in developing countries. For example, in sub-Saharan Africa excluding South Africa, 75 percent of households, some 550 million people, have no access to network electricity. In South Asia, 700 million are similarly not connected to the electricity grid.
