WiGo simplifies the delivery of solar electricity and making clean electricity easily accessible and as commonplace as home WiFi. WiGo users will be able to register and sign in to buy prepaid solar electricity tokens or even recharge remotely, view electricity top up history, and view solar performance from anywhere on the mobile app.

Interested individuals and companies can also partner with WiSolar to become partners. As partner merchants, they can earn commissions on packages sold. Partner installers on the other hand earn on installations and maintenance. These individuals and companies can view orders and easily withdraw commissions from their wallets straight to their bank accounts.

Also, partner developers and property owners will be able to view customers, earn commissions on prepaid tariffs, and determine prepaid tariffs for tenant solar usage. Developers and property owners can get improved cash flow by having electricity used through the prepaid metre paid back to the owner.

“One of our commitments as a tech company and startup is the goal to ensure that we contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions and to contribute in our own little way of empowering solar electricity users and bringing the same closer to people across Africa” said founder and CEO of WiSolar, Tonye Irims, speaking on the launch. He added that the launch of the mobile app is a furtherance of the company’s commitment and drive to democratise the delivery of solar electricity. The aim is to make the availability of solar electricity easily available and affordable to anyone across Africa.
