UpOwa has developed an innovative autonomous solar production solution invoiced on demand to provide Cameroon's rural populations with a sustainable supply of solar electricity and enable them to light up and charge a mobile at a lower cost than existing solutions. Today, one in five people on our planet still has no access to electricity: for 600 million people in Africa, this means that their phones are unusable and they live in the dark as soon as the sun sets. Since the commercial launch, UpOwa has already equipped more than 5000 homes with a guaranteed autonomous solar system and lights up more than 25000 people every night! By the end of 2022, more than one million people will be receiving electricity. The co-founders' objective is to expand their offer in the rest of Cameroon and hope to reach a portfolio of nearly 200,000 installations by the end of 2022.
