Background Statement

In Namibia, our market-based distribution network empowers off-grid entrepreneurs to supply appropriate solar technologies to their rural communities. We engage rural individuals and businesses who see a business opportunity in selling clean energy technologies in their local areas, but who lack access to the technologies, the capital to buy them, and the know-how to effectively market and sell them. Our highly decentralized network of rural shops and sales agents delivers ongoing value and mutual benefit to sellers and users of these clean energy technologies.
