Azuri brings power at scale to off-grid customers in rural emerging markets, providing basic needs that are regarded as routine in more developed countries.
We develop and manufacture Indigo, a revolutionary solar power technology and business model that is transforming the opportunity in off-grid emerging markets, enabling users to benefit from clean renewable energy and simultaneously halve their energy spend.
Conventional solar lighting products require the customer to pay a high initial purchase cost. A rural farmer on $3 per day struggles to afford a typical $70 solar power system, which costs the equivalent of a used car in developed countries.
For the fifth of the world’ population who lack access to electricity, alternatives for lighting include burning fossil fuels such as kerosene, which emits and poisonous fumes and is expensive. Indigo provides clean “all you can eat” power for lighting, mobile phone charging and other basic needs.
Conventional solar products offer just lighting and some add mobile phone charging. We know our Indigo customers aspire to the same things as people in the developed world. That’s why we are unique in offering an upgrade system, the Energy Escalator, that allows the Indigo product to grow over time; or pay-as-you-grow.
