Affordable Solar Energy - Fully-financed solar-as-a-service packages for businesses in emerging markets

Ecoligo's solar-as-a-service is a fully financed solution for businesses in emerging markets.

The solution tackles the high electricity costs faced by commercial and industrial companies in emerging markets. It removes the technical and financial barriers that prevent such projects from being realised, bringing affordable electricity to these businesses. After the diagnostic and a financial ability review are made, the project is presented to the Ecoligo crowdinvesting platform. Financing the projects through crowdinvesting not only enables that solar projects are financed in an efficient way, but also that the private investors are appropriately and systematically involved in the projects. Installation and maintenance of the systems are managed by ecoligo and its local partners, ensuring that customers receive worry-free power. The built system is owned by ecoligo, and the electricity is sold to the client in a lease agreement. The client has a fixed and predictable price that is significantly lower than their current electricity bill with no need for capital expenditure.
