M-Kopa Solar

Off-grid households in rural Africa often rely on kerosene, an expensive and toxic fuel, to light their homes. M-Kopa Solar’s affordable solar kits offer a clean, safe, and more sustainable alternative. The units’ reduced battery size and unique pay-as-you-go model has seen M-Kopa grow to more than 500,000 customers in Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania. The $80 million in funding that the company secured in 2017 will help put its installations in a planned 1 million additional homes by 2020. M-Kopa Solar’s motto is “Power for Everyone,” and its accessible units are bringing power to areas that have long been overlooked.
