   Durban, South Africa  --  Solar products company Econet Solar has announced the launch of a new standalone electricity solution.

The Home Power Station promises to provide lighting and power to charge cell phones on a prepaid basis, similar to the same way that airtime is purchase for mobile phones.

The system will use a solar panel, available at what the company says is a small upfront cost, with customers paying for the electricity generated as they use it.

Econet says that this could be an ideal solution for those people who reside in areas where there is no access to the electricity grid, estimated at around 70% of Africa.
