  • WHAT WE DO

    Through affordable solar home systems, we provide easy access to clean energy
    for people who live with no access to the national grid in Cameroon.

    Our customers pay through small installments over 18-36 months.

    Expertise makes solar energy reliable

    Every upOwa product has gone through rigorous testing. All installations get verified by a trained technician. A call center is also available to help upOwa clients with any trouble they might face.

    "PAYG" makes solar energy affordable

    PAYG stands for Pay-As-You-Go, which means our clients can pay for a solar home system in regular, flexible installments all the while using their product. Monthly payments are equivalent to the monthly cost of previously used kerosene lamps.

    Solar makes energy sustainable

    Our solar home systems have a minimum warrantee of 18 months, and their light will shine many years after this period ends. In addition, the energy produced is clean: no more pollution or health risks at the clients’ house -a great improvement compared to lighting alternatives such as kerosene lamps.

  • OUR VISION

     

     

     

    Today, one in five people still have no access to electricity on our planet,

    which means their cellphones are off and they live in the dark from dusk everyday.

     

    By the end of 2022, more than 1 million people will be powered up by upOwa - let's Power People Now!

     

  • OUR IMPACT

    Boost Local Economy

    The arrival of electricity in a disconnected neighborhood has multiple positive impacts on the local economy. A charged mobile phone allows for communication. Shop lighting allows for extended opening hours and results in increased wages. Having electricity at home enables new streams of revenue and indirect job creation, not to mention the training and employment opportunities that upOwa offers to the local population!

     

    Empower People and Society

    The arrival of electricity in a disconnected house has multiple positive impacts on the life of the whole family. Children can study after dusk and improve their results at school. Toxic fumes are avoided, which improves personal health (no more respiratory problems and reduced strain on the eyes). Home security is improved as a lit house scares off burglars and animals. Access to information is improved with the use of radios.

    Protect The Environment

    Customers’ direct natural environment will benefit from the use of clean energy. upOwa products substantially reduce CO2 emissions, as they replace previously used fossil fuels, burnt in lamps or diesel generators.
