This partnership brings together solar energy company Sola PayGo, payment services provider Bmobile, product manufacturer d.light, and the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT). The partners are collaborating to provide affordable and reliable solar power units to remote rural households using a pay-as-you-go business model. The initiative expects to sell solar units to 2,500 off-grid households in the Papua New Guinea Highlands Region.
This partnership aims to scale-up Sola PayGo’s existing business model, providing high-quality solar power units to rural and remote households on a pay-as-you-go basis. For households, access to affordable energy leads to improved security and health outcomes and opens up further income generation opportunities.
