Greenlight Planet


Greenlight Planet is a for-profit social business that designs, distributes, and finances solar energy products 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 10.5 million units to more than 9 million households and impacting nearly 45 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 and underserved consumers.

A truly global enterprise, Greenlight Planet has offices in 8 countries throughout Africa and Asia, and a total of 1,175 employees. Its team of more than 3,000 sales agents keeps the company directly in touch with rural consumers’ needs in Africa. Also, Greenlight Planet 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.
