3. Off Grid Elec­tric | U.S.A. & Tanzania

Off Grid Elec­tric (OGE) is a ground-​​breaking com­pany based in San Fran­cisco and Arusha, Tan­za­nia, with the ambi­tious aim of pow­er­ing off-​​grid homes across Africa with afford­able, renew­able energy. OGE cur­rently pro­vides solar sys­tems to homes and busi­nesses in rural com­mu­ni­ties through an inno­v­a­tive finan­cial solu­tion. It offers “solar as a ser­vice” to cus­tomers who suf­fer from an expen­sive grid, an unre­li­able grid, or have no grid access at all. Read more about this ini­tia­tive here.
