dc.description.abstract A very significant proportion of Matatiela households still rely on environmentally polluting fuels (i.e. woodfuel, candles, and paraffin) for reasons that they are easily accessible and affordable, and as a legacy of the inequalities of the past social and economic policies. Use of non-electric fuels is prevalent where unemployment and poverty are the norm, and yet, very essential for improving the quality of life. This study focuses on efficient lighting. There are strong economic, social and environmental reasons not only in favour of electric lighting, but in the use of compact fluorescent lamps (CFL) over the traditional incandescent lamps. en_ZA
