Easy Solar distributes a wide range of solar products, appliances and complementary lifestyle products, while providing customers with consumer-financing solutions through mobile technology. The technology enables customers to make small payments over time until they own the product outright.
Off-grid energy companies play a critical role in delivering clean, affordable, reliable energy without the need for grid infrastructure. Sierra Leone’s low electrification rates combined with limited alternatives for clean energy make EasySolar’s business model highly relevant. Sierra Leone and Liberia are both low-income countries, with rates of electrification below 20%. Easy Solar can scale to its reach in these markets, where the vast majority of the population are off-grid, while simultaneously expanding its portfolio of products for existing customers. Founded in 2016, Easy Solar has brought transformative energy services to more than 400,000 people, and created over 500 clean energy jobs, with a far-reaching distribution network going all the way to the last mile. The company offers a wide range of energy solutions from small solar lanterns for lighting and mobile charging, to pico solar home systems with appliances like TVs and fans, all the way up to kW sized systems designed for residential, commercial and industrial users. Because of its extensive distribution network and volume of prior credit data, Easy Solar’s offering now goes beyond its core solar range, with complimentary products including clean cooking devices and pay-as-you-go smartphones.
