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.
