Over the years, Off grid solar home systems (SHS) have provided clean energy to nearly 500 million people worldwide. In Africa, 50% of these numbers are people who have not been able to have access to clean and renewable energy. It is safe to say the PayGo sector has come to revolutionize access to clean and affordable energy in Africa and even in the world at large.
The essence of the PayGo model is the placement (via sale, lease or hire purchase) of a solar home system and related appliances with consumers on an installment basis. In other words, the customer pays for use or ownership of the system over time, making it affordable to have access to energy.
