Greenlight Planet designs, distributes and finances Sun King solar home energy solutions to households and businesses who lack reliable access to the grid. Since its founding in 2008, the company has become a leading global provider of solar home energy products to over 45 million rural consumers in collaboration with 300 partners across the world. Throughout the last decade, the company has grown steadily, building expertise in developing high-quality solar-powered home energy solutions, product distribution in more than 40 countries in Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, and Central America, and consumer financing through its unique ‘pay-as-you-go’ (PAYG) technology.
Greenlight Planet doesn’t simply want to power their customers but to empower them with clean and healthy solutions that will enable them to lead better lives. Greenlight Planet has developed innovative ways to reach the rural customer that not only penetrates hard to reach regions of the world with their proprietary Direct To Village channel (DTV), but also restores dignity by providing honest work to its agents.
About Greenlight Planet
With 11 offices in 5 countries, Greenlight Planet has over 600 full-time employees, engages more than 6000 sales agents, and has experienced 100% growth for each of the past three years. The company has sold 3 million Sun King™ solar lamps since launching in 2009 and serves over 15 million users. Notably, in a 5-year period 1 million were sold in only the last 8 months. Greenlight Planet’s exponential growth has been fueled by two distinct factors: its intelligent, durable, and affordable products, and its unique distribution model. These factors separate the company from its competitors and are the driving forces behind its continued growth.
