Virtual Grid launched in Rwanda!

WakaWaka's prepaid solar power is now available in Rwanda! The prepaid WakaWaka works through weekly payments, much like a prepaid mobile phone. This means low upfront costs and easy access to solar power. The results: children can study at night, no fumes from candles and no kerosine burns and the opportunity to earn money by charging phones. 




The Virtual Grid combines prepaid technology with the WakaWaka Power: after a one-time deposit on the WakaWaka Power, weekly scratch cards are bought to activate the unit. The code on the scratch card, along with a unique code from the WakaWaka Power, is sent by text to a free local service number. A text is instantly returned containing an activation code for the unit.
Provided the pilot is successful, a nationwide rollout in Rwanda (and later other African countries) will follow, which will be supported with additional, larger financing volumes from FMO. FMO and WakaWaka consider this pilot as a foundation for a long-term partnership for off-grid energy.
