People want energy - just enough though.

This is a follow-up documentary to the 2012 film SWITCH. The first documentary mostly dealt with energy use & innovations in developed countries. This documentary -SWITCH ON- deals with underdeveloped countries. There most residents recognize the value of having some energy, but also don't want the overwhelming number of options it can bring to overrun their lifestyles.

Both single mothers and village elders see how a little electricity can enable education, medicine, cleaner kitchens, and a stream of daily news and personal connections with events beyond their current horizons. This film shows how different portions of a grid (solar panels, batteries, electric stoves, public lighting, radios, cell phone apps) can change their lives and enable their local neighborhoods to become places of hope in the future.

Visit the accompanying website for classroom materials and further information on the value of clean energy in this ever connected world of the 21st century.
