Bringing solar energy to the billion individuals without access to grid electricity through flexible payment plans.

There are 1.3 billion people living without access to grid electricity. Every year, that population spends over $30 billion on fuel-based lighting sources like kerosene—a dim, toxic, and expensive energy source. While solar-powered solutions exist, access to such sustainable innovations is extremely limited due to upfront cost. Angaza removes this barrier by creating Pay-As-You-Go technology. Businesses are able to extend flexible solar payment plans to the billion individuals in need of electricity for just $1 per week, making solar energy finally affordable. Their platform allows manufacturers and distributors of off-grid energy products to expand their customer base and access data-driven market insights. To date, Angaza has quadrupled the rate of solar connection, helping over 1 million people make the switch from kerosene to solar power.
