Making Minigrids Multiply

Since deploying its first solar farm at a mine in Tanzania in 2014, Redavia has progressively diversified its customer segments, first to non-mining B2B customers, and most recently to B2B-customers plus an adjacent ”community-add-on”. This project takes the next diversification step: diversifying into the communities segment directly (“community-first”, not “community-add-on”). Applying lessons-learned from previous projects, it develops a “cookie-cutter-approach” for a fast, market-based community-minigrid rollout, enabling this segment to scale alongside Redavia’s B2B segments.
