We serve off-grid households and businesses as well as those without reliable access to the grid.


Powering Access to
Brighter Lives

Today, 1.8 billion people are living without reliable access to an electric grid. Without electricity, most rely on expensive, polluting, and harmful kerosene fuels and gas-powered generators to power and light their home. Millions of people walk miles just to charge their mobile phones, find a place to study, or finish their day’s work.


Put simply: People need reliable, modern energy to reach their full potential. Secure off-grid power helps people live safer and more productive lives.
