Off.Grid:Electric  is the world’s first Solar-as-a-Service company, providing pay-as-you-go solar power to customers in Africa. The company makes solar energy more accessible and affordable for the region’s poor who cannot afford the high upfront costs associated with traditional solar offerings.

Off.Grid:Electric  keeps costs down through innovative technologies, including next-generation lithium batteries and hyper-efficient appliances, that more efficiently deliver solar infrastructure to rural communities.

Affordable and reliable electricity allows customers to light their homes and expand opportunities for work and study. It also allows them to charge cell phones and connect to mobile services and critical financial resources.
