Who We Are

How We Started

Africa Power was founded in 2012 to bring the benefits of modern energy to rural, unserved communities. We believe that for-profit business is the best vehicle to provide “Sustainable Energy for All”.

The team at Africa Power has a passion for engineering, creating, adapting and deploying products which allow people in emerging markets to make (or save) money. For us doing good is good business.

Company The Mossie-GO

Powerful, Portable & Essential

Mossie-GO.jpg

The Mossie-Go is Africa Power’s latest innovation. A palm-sized device that disorientates and kills mosquitos disabling their ability to bite.

 

The internal battery is charged via a micro-usb cable, compatible with both on & off-grid power sources.

 

The internal battery only requires charging every 3 days, utilising ultra-low power, the fan that disseminates a Transflutherin repellent housed in the top of the device.

 

The system was designed in collaboration with Arctech Innovation and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. With clinical trials showing a 90% reduction in bites.

The Solar Seed

Holistic Energy and Health Solution

Full-Solar-Seed-Package.jpg

The Solar Seed is a complete holistic solution that responds to both health and energy poverty in the global south. Packaged with two bright LEDs, phone charging, Mossie-GO, solar panel and torch the system answers the call of new anti-malaria strategies to kick the disease out of day-to-day life.

 

The Solar Seed has already been deployed with our NGO partners the Children of Songea Charity in Tanzania and we are now in the process of scaling up our operations to get these systems in the homes of families across sub-Saharan Africa.

 

A seed for all is a step towards achieving United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, by bringing power and greater healthcare to where it is most needed.
