Using Kpay-as-you-go technology to make solar devices affordable for rural India


Agni’s solar home lighting kits are now integrated with Kpay’s revolutionary pay-as-you-go technology and they are being distributed in less developed regions of Maharashtra in partnership with Swayam Shikshan Prayog (SSP). Local women entrepreneurs were trained to become distributors of Agni Solar devices and allot these to the residentials, thereby making these women economically self sufficient and independent. The users will use the KPay technology to procure the device as per their demand and affordability. The whole technology works via USSD and/or SMS primarily based payment gateways and doesn\’tneedany smart phone, internet or web access. We tend toera of “energy as a service” and reaching bent on the “last mile” client.
