Connecting billions of people by providing mobile power and internet service for the off-grid world.

The mobile phone has reached even the most remote, low-income regions of the world, providing connectivity to millions of people, enabling them to communicate with others, and improving their economic and social prospects. This success is due to a simple business model: mobile providers build a cellular network and run an accessible service that everyone wants. BuffaloGrid followed this example to provide their customers with power-as-a-service. BuffaloGrid is a mobile power and internet service for the off-grid world, using solar energy, innovative technology, and a cashless payment system to provide end-to-end accountability and power where it's needed most. Cashless payments help reduce corruption in the system, while billing and promotion become possible through BuffaloGrid's transparent virtual payment system. The service is locally run by their network of agents who dispense power to their communities, receiving a percentage of each charge as income in return. No other system has the same mix of secure information and easy access, which is the key to bringing mobile network operators into the power distribution market.
