About M-KOPA Solar: M-KOPA Solar, headquartered in Nairobi, Kenya, is the global leader of "pay-as-you-go" energy for offgrid customers.

The company was founded in 2011 by former executives behind M-PESA (the world's leading mobile payment platform) on the belief that mobile technology could revolutionize energy services in emerging markets the same way it has already revolutionized the delivery of communications and financial services.

In under 2 years since commercial launch (Oct 2012), M-KOPA has connected over 100,000 homes in East Africa to solar power. As of Q4 2014 the company is adding over 10,000 new homes each month and employs nearly 500 full time staff with offices in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, the UK and Hong Kong.

 
M-KOPA works in partnership with leading mobile network operators including Safaricom in Kenya, and is busy developing additional pay-as-you-go products and services. The company has also begun
licensing its technology to partners in markets outside East Africa.

In 2013 M-KOPA was given the Excellence in Sustainable Finance Award by the Financial Times and IFC, and in 2014 was selected by Bloomberg New Energy Finance as the world's top New Energy Pioneer. 

The company's innovative business model has been profiled in leading global media including The Economist, the BBC, Bloomberg, the Financial Times and Wired.
