Angaza is a platform which renders solar lighting systems and clean cookstoves accessible and affordable to emerging markets by allowing customers without access to credit and traditional banking services – who are also often in the most isolated areas of a country – to pay for their products remotely using their mobile phone. Most Green Scene products are Angaza-enabled, and the companies’ collaboration is a pioneering pay-as-you-go platform for Ethiopia.
BioLite Ltd produces a wide variety of products, from cooking stoves to solar home systems. Green Scene is the first company to partner with BioLite Ltd in specifically introducing the BioLite 620 solar home system to Ethiopia.
Green Scene and Fosera strive to positively impact the environment, society and local economies through capacity building, job creation and spurring in-country development of the fast-growing renewable energy sector. Furthermore, both companies are currently partnering to pilot a PAYGO Solar Home Systems in collaboration with a local MFI.
Green Scene entered the energy market by providing three Greenlight Planet products, each renowned for its durability and quality – the SunKing Home 60, the SunKing Boom and SunKing Pro 400.
