The problem: Expensive, inefficient, and often dangerous energy in off-grid areas
The solution: Pay-as-you-go power
Potential cost effectiveness, impacts, and implications
Angaza anticipates saving customers hundreds of dollars over the life of their units compared with weekly kerosene and phonecharging expenditures. The project will conservatively displace approximately 500 tons of CO2 emissions per year by offsetting kerosene combustion, and will bring affordable solar power to over 2,500 people. In addition, energy usage and payment data, and distribution best practices collected during the project, will be used to inform the scale up of PAYG sales throughout East Africa.
