We believe that essential services as water, electricity, and healthcare are deserved by all, regardless of their location or financial status.
To achieve this ambition, we empower customers everywhere through advanced, solar-based solutions, utilizing sunlight and state-of-the-art technology to lead Africa into a more sustainable, inclusive future.
High Impact: We focus on projects that present an opportunity for massive change. Hundreds of millions live with no electricity access in rural Africa due to their geographical distance from the grid; for these communities, off-grid solutions offer immense potential.
Affordability: Most affordable in Africa; less than $1 per month for 3 light system (Best customer award by Frost and Sullivan)
Customer-Centric: Friendly client contracts and business model align with the proven tool-kit of infrastructure, project finance, and contract transparency with clients (NPS 4.9/5)
Local Employment: More than 3500 local installers and a highly experienced support team allow for rapid expansion and excellent service.
Gender Equality: We put a strong focus on gender equality, with women constituting 40% of the workforce.
