6. What feature do you think makes you unique? How are you contributing to energy access for all?
PaygOps, our flagship fintech software, distinguishes itself through its flexibility, interoperability, which allows the smooth management of lease financing and field operations but also provides key financial data and metrics to investors.
PAYGO industry is expanding fast and contributing to making energy accessible and affordable for everyone. However, delivery models are yet to provide flexible and accessible technologies and the lack of interoperability creates unnecessary costs and bottlenecks across the industry. That's why Solaris Offgrid released OpenPAYGO™ Suite, which consists of a set of free and secure Open Source Technologies to facilitate the adoption of PAYGO products to help accelerate rural or low-income communities access to life-changing amenities such as energy, water supply, health, or digital services.
7. How do you think GOGLA can help accelerate your business and/or the energy access sector?
We believe in advocating on PAYGO law framework, as well as facilitating debt and equity flow. Of course, facilitating practitioners' exchanges with conferences is always helpful.
