ZOLA (formerly Off Grid Electric)

ZOLA Elec­tric designs renew­able energy solu­tions based on the lat­est in solar, bat­tery and power elec­tron­ics tech­nol­ogy. ZOLA’s cus­tomer solu­tion com­bines small solar PV pan­els, bat­tery stor­age, LED light­ing, and low-​​power appli­ances to cre­ate off-​​grid solu­tions that pro­vide reli­able, con­ve­nient, and afford­able pre-​​paid elec­tric­ity and light­ing in the rural and peri-​​urban mar­kets in Africa.

ZOLA pro­vides a fully inte­grated elec­tric power solu­tion for homes at cost-​​parity to what “base of the pyra­mid” cus­tomers are already pay­ing on a monthly basis for kerosene (for light­ing) and cell phone charg­ing.  Adapt­able to energy need and income, ZOLA Electric’s solar sys­tems can be bought over time using PAYGo micro-​​finance leas­ing and mobile money pay­ments. ZOLA Elec­tric pow­ers more than 180,000 homes and busi­nesses across Tan­za­nia, Rwanda, Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana, and Nigeria.
