Installing solar home systems in Tanzania

SAfP is rolling out a range of carefully selected Solar Home Systems to rural communities in Tanzania and helping households climb the energy ladder.  We target rural communities far from the grid, but that have access to mobile phone coverage through the Government’s UCSAF programme. Mobile phone ownership in turn facilitates the use of mobile money products  for micro-payments of services such as solar light and power.

Economic Impact

Working in some of the most rural communities in Tanzania, the arrival of solar lighting products brings with it many associated economic benefits. First of all a village agent is established, to resell product, and manage mobile money top ups. Our products provide an extra income stream to the agent. We engage with women in the community to act as agents for solar home products, and help spread the word. We also hold product training sessions to ensure users know how everything works.
