Abstract: 
If Vision 2030 of UN to provide electricity to everyone be achieved, it is essential that over 40% of Botswana's population living without electricity be looked into from different perspectives and new models. In all smart grid models, it is often emphasized that the residents and the consumers play a vital role in electricity management of Supply and Demand and are expected to be co-producers of electricity. This article looks into the various challenges and success that Botswana has achieved in terms of implementing new technologies and what needs to be done to provide electricity to the rest of the 40% of the community without electricity. This article goes on to describe how a small smart mini grid could serve as a purpose to aid in village development.
