Fenix electrifies 200,000 homes in Uganda through solar

Fenix International announces that the company has provided electricity to 200,000 Ugandan homes as of June 2018 through its ReadyPay Solar Power System.

Fenix, a company owned by French energy giant Engie, has built a co-branding and distribution partnership with telecom giant MTN Uganda to reach last-mile households.

“In Uganda, 84 percent of our customers are farmers, self-employed or own a small business in rural areas and Christine fits right within that mold. The majority of the ReadyPay power systems are purchased primarily to power lights in people’s homes. People also use their ReadyPay power systems to charge their phones and to listen to radio”, days Daniel Willette, Fenix International Uganda’s managing director.
