Thanks so much for an enlightening podcast.  I admire Adam for his work in the Peace Corps and his efforts on behalf of Power for All.  He makes a great case for the efforts of this organization to address energy poverty with realistic and practical action.

 It´s very refreshing in this era of endless outrage to actually see solutions getting applied in areas of great need and without insistence that it is the only valid way forward.  As you say (and I hope I paraphrase your comments accurately) the installation of smaller scale solar is a start and not necessarily applicable to all contexts around the world.  But, in many cases, it is a solution that can be scaled up from decentralized microgrids as technology, including storage, matures. It makes sense to emphasize the significance of locally generated energy,  local jobs and local management through distributed energy resources. 

I encourage everyone to learn about this great effort by listening to the podcast, taking a look at powerforall.org and getting involved by donating money and time.
