OFF GRID ELECTRIC

Off Grid Electric

Off Grid Electric (OGE) is a ground-breaking company delivering solar power for families and businesses based in Tanzania, Rwanda with the recent expansion to the Ivory Coast.

OGE was one of the first organizations to offer pay-as-you-go solar home systems, which made basic electricity services (such as clean, bright light and phone charging) accessible to the poorest for as little as USD 0.19 a day. OGE’s work benefits numerous groups, including young men and women in Tanzania and Rwanda. Through the OGE Academy, the company now employs over 900 local people, almost all of whom are between 18 and 24 years old and 43% of whom are women. This is a catalytic source of private employment in economies with upwards of 35% unemployment for this demographic.
