PEG Africa’s subsidiaries provide solar home systems to low-income and rural households on a pay-as-you-go basis.
Each solar home system comprises a battery, an 8W solar panel, two lamps, a torch, a radio and a phone charger. After 12 monthly payments the system is paid off. Solar home system owners are eligible for credit for additional products such as efficient cookstoves, smartphones and solar-powered TVs.
PEG Africa’s subsidiaries mainly serve customers in peri-urban and rural communities with a typical daily income of between US$ 1 and US$ 6. Many clients are smallholder farmers or fishermen.
