The Company

M-KOPA is the global leader for “pay-as-you-go” energy services for off-grid customers.

Following 2 years of piloting and development, M-KOPA began commercial sales in Kenya in October 2012. M-KOPA expanded to Uganda in 2013 and commences operations in Tanzania in late 2014.

As of September 2014, we are actively providing affordable solar power to over 100,000 households and adding 2,500 more every week.  Our team includes over 400 staff and we sell our product through more than 1000 retail agents and shops.

The founders of the company are experienced mobile technology innovators who believe in the huge potential of transformative, affordable products designed for underserved consumers. While excellent technology is a pre-requisite, technology alone does not solve for customer needs. Success comes when smart technology is combined with a commitment to on-going, on-the-ground delivery. To that end, M-KOPA is beginning to license its technology to experienced and reputable third parties in markets outside of East Africa (licensing queries should be sent to licensing@m-kopa.com).

M-KOPA’s bottom line: customers save money vs kerosene.*

(*That customers breathe easier and help reduce carbon emissions = great bonuses)

ourimpactM-KOPA strives to help our customers get rid of kerosene and other costly and inefficient energy substitutes.  Solar powered appliances are readily available and their performance and durability continues to get better all the time.  M-KOPA’s focus is to make those great technologies affordable.

By offering world-class solar power products to consumers for less than their daily spend on kerosene, we enable consumers to leapfrog to locally-generated, clean, renewable energy.  Better yet – once they have paid for their device in full, they can enjoy years of free power and put the money saved towards other priorities – more food on the table, more money for school books and tuition, more cash to invest in businesses.
