Providing over 250,000 people living off-grid with affordable, sustainable pre-paid solar energy.

More than 1.2 billion people across the globe lack access to electricity. Kingo has developed an efficient, next-generation solution to turn lives ON through a prepaid solar energy service that is cheaper than candles, kerosene, and diesel. By combining state-of-the-art hardware, software, and commercial innovation, Kingo is enabling people living off-grid to improve connectivity, productivity, and quality of life. While many families living off-grid will spend $15 per month on candles, Kingo's technology reduces the amount of money spent on lighting to just $8 per month. To date, Kingo has provided energy to over 60,000 low-income families and expects to provide energy to more than 500 million people by 2035.
