'Electricity is fundamental to quality life': the man bringing off grid, pays-as-you-go power to Africa.

British entrepreneur Mansoor Hamayun's clean energy company, Bboxx, aims to connect 36 million people in sub-Saharan Africa to electricity through pay-as-you-go solar solutions. With a recent $100 million investment from EnerTech, Bboxx is set for significant growth. Started as an idealistic startup, Bboxx has already impacted 3.6 million lives by providing solar power, batteries, smartphones, and more. The company addresses Africa's energy gap, positively influencing communities and enabling education and businesses. Bboxx leverages Africa's telecom boom and mobile money adoption, offering affordable alternatives. Backed by Mitsubishi and Engie, Bboxx sees Africa as a testing ground for digital data-led energy systems, contributing to the continent's evolving energy landscape with exciting growth prospects, especially in countries like Nigeria. https://www.theguardian.com/business/2024/jan/02/electricity-is-fundamental-to-quality-of-life-the-man-bringing-off-grid-pay-as-you-go-power-to-africa Below is One of Bboxx’s solar-powered irrigation products in use.

          With such huge number of connections, Africa will suddenly rise in number of homes connected to electricity and what's even better is that this will be renewable energy.

            @munene_mugambi this is going to reduce reliance of non-renewable energy which has been the case in many parts of Africa.

                      That's an impressive and impactful goal to provide clean energy access to millions of people in sub-Saharan Africa. It's great to see entrepreneurs like Mansoor Hamayun working towards sustainable solutions for energy poverty.
