Kukula Solar Transforming Lives Through Solar
Kukula Solar purchases solar products wholesale from the manufacturer and sells them to customers directly through the solarpreneurs stationed at the community or nearby. Solarpreneurs are the link between Kukula Solar and local communities. Engaging Traditional Leaders is key to building trust and credibility within the villages. Customers are generally families living on less than $2 a day without access to electricity. Some products, generally smaller units, are sold outright, others are purchased under a rent-to-own system.
Greenlight Planet supplies discounted solar products warranted for two years. They also provide marketing and technical support, including advanced products capable of cell phone verification of payments.
Angaza will accelerate Kukula Solar’s distribution in rural communities by its PayGo mobile platform which is compatible with the Greenlight technology.
Three traditional leaders are partners to help distribute solar lanterns to their 40,000 villagers including across Zambia’s border and into Malawi.
