Mobisol combines solar energy with an affordable payment plan via mobile phone, comprehensive customer service and innovative remote-monitoring technology. The Berlin-based company offers low-income customers in developing nations quality solar home systems that are a clean alternative to unhealthy, environmentally harmful and expensive fossil fuels.

So far, Mobisol has installed over 50,000 solar home systems on households and businesses in East Africa, thus enabling approximately 250,000 beneficiaries to access clean, affordable and reliable solar energy. This way, Mobisol is stimulating economic and social development in project countries while simultaneously contributing to global environmental protection.
