Over 30,000 off-grid cell phone towers operate in Africa


Over 95% are running with inefficient; polluting; and expensive diesel generators

Dominated by mobile providers:

Our anchor clients are often cell phone tower operators. Cell phone towers require between 500W and 2.5kW or highly reliable 48V DC power 24/7. Power availability must exceed 99.95-99.98% under a detailed service level agreement with penalties for non-conformance.

Demand superior reliability & availability:

Our Anchor clients are credit-worthy “blue-chip” clients who own and operate multiple sites in each country and who value a consistent and reliable power system, with power availability at over 99.9% and highly stable voltage frequency. They provide a stable high credit-worthy investment base for the business.

Multiple benefits over diesel:

We often compete with diesel generators and offer lower operating costs to our clients on a fixed monthly fee with zero Capex requirements, offering price stability, removal of technology risk; lower emissions; improved environmental compliance and CSR benefits. In many cases, we significantly reduce the number of maintenance contracts, reducing administrative costs.
