M-KOPA Solar is the global leader of “pay-as-you-go” energy for off-grid customers. Since 2012, M-KOPA has connected more than 200,000 homes in Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda to solar power, and is now adding over 500 new homes each day. It uses mobile phone technology to allow customers to make micro payments for their solar panels.
