The project provides renewable energy through off grid micro-scale solar powered energy networks that replace expensive and inefficient substitutes below that currently being paid by the customers.

The primary objectives of our business model are to increase this life-enhancing access to electricity for these communities by implementing an innovative financial model which enables that the equipment is installed in a home at no cost to the recipient. The system then allows the recipient to purchase prepaid codes which enables the equipment to provide power corresponding to the time purchased.
