About US:
M-KOPA Solar is the global leader of “pay-as-you-go” energy for
off-grid customers. Since its commercial launch in October 2012, M-KOPA has
connected more than 500,000,000 homes in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda to solar
power, and is now adding over 500 new homes each day. The success of M-KOPA (M=
mobile, KOPA= to borrow) stems from making solar products affordable to
low-income households on a pay-per-use installment plan. Customers acquire
solar systems for a small deposit and then purchase daily usage “credits” for
less than the price of traditional kerosene lighting. After one year of
payments customers own their solar systems outright and can upgrade to more
power.
