AzuriTV, the first complete home TV pay-as-you-go solar package for off-grid households, developed by Azuri Technologies, was announced winner of the ‘Innovative Technology of the Year’ award at the Africa Utility Week Industry Awards, celebrating pioneering projects and people.
Azuri Technologies, a leading commercial provider of PayGo Solar Home Systems to rural off-grid communities, was commended for its innovative solar TV service at the ceremony in Cape Town. The AzuriTV service allows consumers with no access to the grid to receive up to 60 channels of content on a solar powered 24” TV, at a cost of less than 1 US$ per day. Customers don’t have to purchase separately a dish or set-top box as everything is included in the package. There are also four LED lights for use inside and outside the home to give customers more choice on how they light their homes.
