According to Mobisol’s East Africa’s CEO Henrik Axelsson, “Rural communities in Kenya continue to use unreliable fossil fuels like kerosene, which are not only harmful to the environment and people’s health but are also costly to maintain – yet, solar energy is in abundance. Through Mobisol’s top-notch innovative technology, off-grid households in Kenya can finally afford solar systems that are of high quality and powerful enough to meet their entire household and business needs.”

Mobisol launched in Kenya in 2016 and aims to help Kenyans in off-grid communities to transition to solar energy.
