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.
