SolarNow is a for profit social business with Dutch origins, passionate about transforming lives by providing high quality solar energy and financing solutions in East Africa.
We sell high-quality solar solutions to fit the needs of rural households and small entrepreneurs — from 10Wp small solar home systems capable of powering a radio, phone and a number of lights to 5kWp systems that can power a small office or machine – plus a range of consumer electronics, including televisions, fridges, flat irons, shavers and water pumps.
Crucially, SolarNow also provides credit that allows customers to spread payment for all these products over 24 months. Together with a network of 36 branches (>250 FTE) and a price plan that includes full installation and service – backed by a unique five-year warranty – SolarNow has all the pieces in place to take optimal advantage of the huge off-grid market opportunity. The company already serves over 12,000 clients in Uganda and plans to roll out its operations into other East African countries during 2017.
