David Levine wants to “solarize Ghana.” Later this summer volunteers with his organization, Volunteers for International Development and Aid (VIDA), will road trip across Ghana on a 40-foot revamped school bus (SolBus) that will serve as a “mobile solar workshop.” They will install solar power in schools and clinics that might not otherwise have access to electricity. Levine joins us to explain.
