We support enterprises and institutions working to provide income-generating energy products and services suitable for three customer groups:
Movers of people and goods who aspire to transition from diesel or petrol to electric vehicles. Incomes can increase by as much as 35% by shifting from ICE to EV.
Those moving from subsistence to commercial farming on <5 acres land, who can achieve a living income when they can produce efficiently and get produce to market in good condition.
Urban, peri-urban and rural micro-enterprise owners engaged in the small-scale provision of goods and services. Reliable power can contribute to longer opening hours, lower costs, with net income increase potential of up to 50%.
