About US:
M-KOPA
Solar 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
200,000 homes in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda to solar power, and is now adding
over 500 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.
