Meet our customers

Africa is leading the world’s transition to sustainable energy with decentralized renewable power. ZOLA’s power solutions make it possible for homes and businesses across Africa and anywhere in the world to generate, store and consume energy sustainably. The economic potential of businesses and communities worldwide will be unleashed with access to clean, reliable 24-hour power that that is assured by ZOLA’s leading technology. And economics isn’t the only thing that stands to gain — energy access significantly improves the health, education, financial inclusion, women’s empowerment and environmental outcomes of those who have it.

Education

Access to the internet and the incredible educational resources available online are impossible without power. A fully charged mobile phone and access to television are critical to nurture curiosity and social connections. Reliable lighting means safety, security and more productive hours in the evening. 

Healthcare

Developing countries shoulder a disproportionate amount of air pollution, which lead to an estimated 6.5 million premature deaths each year, according to the International Energy Agency.

Women Empowerment

Access to power can dramatically improve women’s well-being as well as their financial and social status. The internet, mobile communications and television can play a key role in empowering women and girls by exposing them to new social norms and sources of information. 

Small Business

The internet, mobile communications and power for computers, machines, appliances, light and entertainment are essential for every business. Clean, cost-effective and reliable power is helping businesses serve more customers, expand trading hours, build their brand and diversify into new services and income-generating opportunities.

Residential

ZOLA’s power systems are made accessible through the ‘Pay-As-You-Go’ (PAYGO) model. Users pay a deposit, ZOLA installs the power system and the remaining capital cost is paid over a flexible term, often 2-3 years. This reduces the risk – customers can pay off the cost of a power system with their existing energy outlay and then use free solar energy to reduce energy costs.

Manufacturing

Each new household using our power solutions keeps 140 kg of carbon dioxide and 1.45 kg of black carbon from being emitted into the atmosphere every year. Diesel generators in Nigeria alone produce about 29 million metric tons of CO2 each year – equivalent to roughly 6.3 million passenger vehicles.
