Lack of energy access in sub-Saharan Africa is a significant problem, with more than 600 million people currently without mains electricity supply. In Rwanda, 9.5 million people or 81% of the population cannot access mains electricity, which has a negative impact on quality of life and limits people’s chances of achieving economic prosperity.

BBOXX is helping to address this issue by providing off-grid communities in developing countries with smart, affordable and clean energy solutions. BBOXX customers typically use a Pay-As-You-Go payment method, which offers more access to people who are able to have electricity at home at a price they can afford. To date BBOXX has installed more than 150,000 systems and provided around 750,000 people with access to energy.
