Pawa Customer Stories

Democratize Energy:
Free personal mobile energy to work 600 million Sub-Saharan Africans out of poverty–as a business, not by aid.


600 million people in rural Africa spend hundreds of dollars and thousands of hours each year to power their business, light their homes, tune in their radios, and charge their mobile phones.

Building  grids to serve each community would require trillions and take decades to complete. Yet, no rural African can expect to improve business or life without daily access to a sustainable energy source.

Power products are now flooding Africa. Each cheaper than the other. Customers are treated as consumers. Intermediaries drive up operating costs. Few offerings make business sense.


Pawa solves the $6 trillion Sub-Saharan power problem with $100: A 600 million people market with substitute cost of 35% of household income.

Unlike other offerings, Pawa is free energy and designed to make income for its customers: To Power their business. Charge mobile phones for income. Keep stores open after dark. Freely move with opportunities. Sell and distribute Pawa.

Customers pay back their investment in weeks. And enjoy immediate business and life benefits. No-one can ever take their power away.

Pawa is not a suite of products. It is the new power grid of Africa:

Power in Your Hands.
