Get in touch with from Oolu
Provider of high-quality solar products on an affordable financing plan for off-grid communities in West Africa.
In rural West Africa, 150 million people are currently living without electricity. Oolu, a Y Combinator company, aims to reduce this number by delivering affordable solar energy to West Africa’s off-grid population, beginning in Senegal. Despite the surge of innovation in solar storage and panel technology many people living in rural areas of West Africa still walk miles to the nearest city to charge their cellphones and purchase kerosene for lanterns and the average rural family spends around $20 per month on energy-related costs. Oolu’s in-home solar system is composed of three adjustable lights and two USB plugs, powered by a battery that holds a charge for up to six hours with maximum output. For a low monthly fee, Oolu will install the system and perform all necessary maintenance, including free battery replacements and system upgrades.
