We design and install solar power systems for homes, we perform energy audits and provide consultancy services for energy efficiency, and we promote the adoption of renewable energy solutions as a whole both for residential and commercial purposes.
Over the years, we have realized that while most of our customers are all for renewable energy solutions, the high initial costs are too high for them and end up prohibiting them from adopting solutions that would ultimately save them money over time and contribute to a greener environment.

In most African countries, the economy is based on micro-spending, that is, small payments over long periods of time as opposed to bulk investments and large outlays of cash. That is why even common consumer items such as food and household supplies are sold in smaller sachets and packets as opposed to for instance the United States where you save more by buying a jumbo pack.
The common person in our society works hard but lives essentially from hand to mouth. There is no avenue to save up a lot of money nor to spend a lot of money in one go.
For this reason, we feel that just as people build homes over time or take out loans to buy cars, we should also provide financing and leasing facilities for people to invest in renewable energy solutions that would save them money over time.
