3 Fresher Telesales Representative Jobs – M-KOPA Solar Ltd




Organization: M-KOPA Solar Ltd
Duty Station:  Entebbe,
Uganda
Reports to: Customer Care Manager
About M-KOPA Ltd:
M-KOPA
Solar, headquartered in Nairobi, Kenya, 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 150,000 homes in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania to
solar power, and is now adding over 600 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 US $0.45, or 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. All
revenues are collected in real-time via mobile money systems (such as M-PESA in
Kenya) and embedded GSM sensors in each solar system allow M-KOPA to monitor
real time performance and regulate usage based upon payments.  This connected design means that M-KOPA is
processing vast amounts of data (i.e. over 10,000 mobile payments per day) via
the company’s proprietary cloud platform, M-KOPAnet. M-KOPA has been recognized
for its pioneering business mode and scale, notably winning the 2015 Zayed
Future Energy Prize, being selected as the top New Energy Pioneer at the 2014
Bloomberg New Energy Finance awards and earning the 2013 FT/IFC Excellence in
Sustainable Finance Award.
