Bboxx, a next-generation utility, has recently launched a new service to provide renewable solutions to off-grid communities in Africa. The service named “Flexx by Bboxx” will offer entry-level clean energy products for the people at the bottom of the energy pyramid.
As part of the launch, Bboxx announced two new solar-powered products under the banner Flexx. The first one is an upfront cash sales product named Flexx10, a ‘plug-and-play’ portable solar lantern. Flexx10 is capable of charging mobile phones.
The second product is a ‘pay-as-you-go’ token-based multi-light system with charging ports. This system, named Flexx40, comes with dimmable LED light bulbs, allowing better control over energy usage.
Rwanda and Kenya are set to be Bboxx’s first markets for these new solar products, with the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) receiving the Flexx product suite in the next few months.
Mansoor Hamayun, CEO and Co-founder of Bboxx, mentioned that the new solar-powered products will significantly aid Bboxx in transforming the lives of millions in developing countries, powering their energy needs.
“We are confident that Flexx by Bboxx will significantly aid us in transforming the lives of millions in the developing world, powering the energy needs of individuals, families, emerging businesses, and wider communities. Energy is the key to unlocking inclusive and sustainable economic development on a global scale, and we look forward to seeing the positive impact Flexx by Bboxx will have on this new pool of underserved customers,” said Hamayun.
Flexx by Bboxx will bring affordable, accessible, and reliable products to market in remote areas that still lack access to a reliable energy source, getting millions of people onto the energy ladder. Through this launch Bboxx will build on the momentum of its ongoing market expansion and serve a wider array of customers, strengthening its existing off-grid communication offers.
Bboxx has successfully delivered clean energy solutions for more than 2 million people over the world with substantial operations in African countries like Rwanda, Kenya, Togo, and the DRC.
