M-KOPA Solar Connects 200K Homes

Kenyan mobile technology company M-KOPA has powered up 200,000 homes across East Africa – having doubled the number of homes connected to its solar home systems in the past eight months.

The average M-KOPA household has over five inhabitants. Accordingly, M-KOPA is now providing power to over a million people across East Africa.

Jesse Moore, Managing Director and Co-Founder, M-KOPA Solar, says, “It took us two years to connect our first 100,000 homes and just eight months to connect our second 100,000 homes. We are pushing hard to grow even faster and reach our goal of one million homes by the end of 2017.”

M-KOPA is now selling 500 new systems each day across Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. It has a network of over 1,000 direct sales agents and 85 customer service centers across East Africa.
