OverviewSuggest Edit

Angaza’s Pay-As-You-Go solution enables businesses to extend flexible solar payment plans to the billion individuals without access to grid electricity. Our platform allows manufacturers and distributors of off-grid energy products to expand their customer base and access data–driven market insights. Angaza’s partners can launch their Pay-As-You-Go program today without the investment of building and operating the necessary technology. Through a licensing model, Angaza offers a complete Pay-As-You-Go platform that redefines how off-grid energy products are purchased, financed, and monitored in emerging markets. This presents an opportunity for over one billion people to purchase solar products for less than they currently spend on inferior energy options like burning kerosene. Angaza’s Pay-As-You-Go technology is suitable for a variety of products ranging from 1/2-watt solar study lights to 200+ watt solar home systems, as well as electronic clean cookstoves, micro-grid meters, and solar water pumps.
