More than 11 million households (which accounts to 40% of the total population) is off-grid, making Pakistan one of the major off-grid geographies in the world. Moreover, the people in the off-grid have income levels <USD 2.00/day, and a considerable portion of the income goes towards addressing the basic energy requirements. We intend to provide cost effective solutions to the communities that enable access to energy.
We seek to address the issue by providing cost effective & high quality solar portable lighting solutions to the communities through different channels which include last mile distribution partners, like local community mobilizers, Village Level Enterprises and other potential channels. The initial phase is to develop footprint in a geography followed by partnerships development with financing organizations. After Sales Service mechanism is also being set in place.
We offer a range of off-grid solar lighting solutions, that also offer relatively higher order features like cell phones charging enabling the off-grid communities with quality products that are not only cost-effective but also more sustainable compared to conventional alternatives. All the solutions offer highly feasible opportunities to the targeted beneficiaries, mainly on three counts:
1. Portability:The portability feature allows the customers to take the system/ product to any location and use it in desired way.
2. Ease of use: The products have a ‘Plug ‘n Play’ feature makes them easy to operate. This offers the customers the convenience to assemble the products for use, without needing any specialized installation. The major components are already integrated in the control units. The lighting solutions being offered are sufficient to address to the basic lighting requirements of a typical village household along with mobile-charging feature.
3. Reliability: The products are designed to be robust and sturdy, capable enough to withstand the rough usage and extreme weather conditions of remote geographies. The products are further designed to be maintenance free. All products are backed by a free replacement warranty. The warranty covers manufacturing defects and/or performance issues.
