     125[http://www.sharedsolar.org/ Shared Solar] is a rural electrification 
     126project providing over 3000 people with electricity in sub-Saharan 
     127Africa (Mali and Uganda) with proposed deployments in Kenya and Haiti. 
     128Due to the nature of the physical environments, and the model of 
     129distributed generation, we need to have local intelligence at our 
     130sites for the distribution of prepaid electricity and management of 
     131the deployed infrastructure. 
     132 
     133This distributed/local intelligence is built using Twisted. Twisted 
     134has helped me prototype and deploy rapidly, learn and react quickly to 
     135on-the-ground issues as they arise, and adapt the service to 
     136configurations using different hardware and protocols. Without the 
     137services built around Twisted, I'm certain the project would not be as 
     138successful - it has helped us turn otherwise static infrastructure 
     139into something much more in very short time. 
     140 
     141Huge thanks to the Twisted community for their great work and making 
     142this possible. I'd also like to acknowledge the wonderful support by 
     143the folks on irc:#twisted.
