Our systems have been designed to be affordable relative to the options available to rural communities with no access to a national electrical grid. The design is economically competitive with other technologies (e.g. diesel generator sets and photovoltaic panels) in these markets, however none of these technologies is as inexpensive as electricity sold through a national grid. This is especially true here in North America, where more than 99% of the population has access to grid electricity. Due to the niche size of the market here in the US, STG has currently chosen to invest our resources in the development of a technology optimized for deployment in rural areas of developing countries, where we believe we can have the greatest impact.
