Solar Run and Angaza Partner to Bring Reliable Energy Access to Underserved Markets

K088 PAY AS YOU GO Solar Home System

Angaza is excited to partner with Solar Run, manufacturer of reliable and affordable solar solutions for off-grid and under-electrified communities. Solar Run offers a wide range of sustainable products including solar home systems, solar lights, and solar-powered appliances. A majority of their devices are offered through a pay-as-you-go (PAYG) billing model that allows low-income consumers to afford life-changing products through incremental payment plans.

“We are thrilled to announce that Solar Run’s YelloBox (K088) solar home system is now available on the Angaza platform,” said Lesley Marincola, Angaza CEO. “This flexible and durable energy solution is integrated with Angaza for PAYG functionality and provides consumers in emerging markets with an affordable option for meeting their energy needs.”


Founded in 2016, Solar Run has provided high-quality, clean energy products and affordable power solutions to over 1 million people living in areas without reliable access to electricity. Their YelloBox (K088) solar home system is one such product, designed to be the ideal power source for home or business use. This modern, efficient energy solution supports multiple lights simultaneously and includes a solar panel, portable mobile phone charging device, and multifunctional cable.

“There are still over 750 million people worldwide who do not have reliable access to electricity or other sources of clean energy, according to a recent report by World Bank. Solar Run aims to be a leader in closing this energy gap over the next 5 years,” said John Jiang, CEO of Solar Run. “It is a pleasure to partner with Angaza, whose sophisticated PAYG platform will help us reach more underserved markets and achieve this goal faster.”

The benefits of utilizing solar energy over other energy sources are manifold. Solar energy is a cleaner and brighter alternative to kerosene and other fossil fuels that cause environmental pollution and respiratory damage. Solar energy is also cheaper to acquire in the long run than other energy sources that rely on frequent purchases of more expensive (and less versatile) fuels.

Pay-As-You-Go PAYG for solar home systems

What is Pay-As-You-Go?

PAYG is a technology that removes the upfront price barrier of Solar Home Systems (SHS), by allowing end-users to pay in affordable amounts over time. This is accomplished by additional electronics, which enables or disables the SHS on request, achieving a top-up payment structure similar to mobile phones.

In order to make a PAYG system work, there is a locking /unlocking functionality that needs to be integrated into the hardware of the system. Solar Home Systems has the PAYG functionality included.

Secondly, a PAYG software backend is needed to track customer payments and offer Customer Relationship Management (CRM) functions, which are offered by PAYG service providers. Depending on the chosen PAYG service provider, the backend also includes warehousing, service management, and many other functionalities.
