Rafiki Power improves hundreds of lives by providing clean and affordable energy to people and businesses without access to the national grid. To date, we have successfully installed and operate 8 mini grid solutions (solar PV & battery) in Tanzania.
We offer clean and reliable energy as well as value-added services (e.g. consumer goods and productive-use equipment) in order to increase the standard of living and foster economic activity. Through our efficient design process and standardized technology, we are able to provide "customized" solutions at competitive prices.
