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.
