Coke Launching Solar-Powered African Kiosks

Coca-Cola is using green technology to consolidate its African market share. The global soft drink giant is offering heavily subsidized solar power kits to kiosk owners--the hope is that wiring previously grid-free grocery kiosks for electricity will allow them to stay open longer into the day, and sell more Coca-Cola products. Partner One Degree Solar is providing Coca-Cola with their BrightBulb solar kits, which will then be distributed to thousands of grocery kiosks across Kenya. (Fast Company)
