Greenlight Planet is a for-profit social business that designs, distributes, and finances solar home energy with an under-served population in mind: the 1.3 billion global consumers for whom the old-fashioned electrical grid is unavailable or too expensive. Since its founding in 2009, the company has become a leading global provider of solar-energy products selling nearly 9.5 million units to almost 7 million households and impacting nearly 35 million rural consumers in 40 countries in the Americas, Sub Saharan Africa, South Asia and Asia Pacific
From its wide range of trusted Sun King™ solar lamps and home energy systems, to its innovative distribution partnerships, to its flexible EasyBuy™ pay-as-you-go financing model, Greenlight Planet continuously strives to meet the evolving needs of the off-grid market.
A truly global enterprise, Greenlight Planet has 11 offices in 8 countries throughout Africa and India, and a total of 1,175 employees around the world. Its team of more than 2,500 sales agents keeps the company directly in touch with rural consumers’ needs. But Greenlight works with a vast international network of distribution partners, from large micro-finance institutions to local micro-entrepreneurs, expanding the reach of solar energy products. With over ten years of experience, Greenlight Planet is determined to continue setting the gold standard for performance and design, while powering human potential.
