Nigeria's first financed commercial solar energy provider helping SMEs accelerate growth

We believe that there is a remarkable correlation between the cost of energy and quality of life. Throughout history, when the cost of energy has come down a lot (for example, with the steam engine) the quality of life has drastically improved.

For this reason, we have developed Nigeria’s first solar financing model that allows for maximum deployment of solar to support small business and families in Nigeria, by eliminating the huge barrier (cost) to entry associated with acquisition.
