African city dwellers already face the world's most expensive and unreliable energy and water services. And this is getting progressively worse as rapid urbanization and climate change place our aging infrastructure under increasing strain.

Plentify addresses this by enabling the deployment of smart, distributed energy and water infrastructure at scale. Our technology connects this infrastructure to the internet, intelligently manages each piece as efficiently as possible, and connects all nodes to form a virtual power or water plant which can provide value adding services back to the central energy or water grid.

We design each of our products and their associated business models to address the key barriers to adoption and effective use of distributed energy and water infrastructure. For example, for our first product we partner with insurance companies to pay to upgrade households from electric to solar water heaters and sell hot water for a share of electricity savings.

Note that in the remainder of this application we refer to water heaters by the term used in South Africa any many other countries: geysers.
