About M-KOPA Solar:
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
