Bboxx launches Flexx by Bboxx to provide clean energy to off-grid communities in Africa

AFRICA – Bboxx, a renewable energy provider has launched Flexx by Bboxx, a new brand offering entry-level clean energy products to millions of people at the bottom of the energy pyramid in Africa.

Flexx by Bboxx will bring new and reliable products to market that are affordable, accessible, and flexible, getting millions more people onto the energy ladder.

The company has introduced  Flexx10, an affordable ‘plug and play’ portable solar lantern, with phone charging capabilities, designed for rural customers and those who are mobile.

Bboxx also launched Flexx40, a Pay-As-You-Go token-based multi-light solar system, designed for rural customers at the bottom of the energy pyramid, with a demand for lighting applications and mobile phone charging.

The system comes with dimmable LED light bulbs, which allow customers to have more control over their energy usage.

Both new products are designed to minimize lifetime costs and include features that reduce maintenance and service requirements.

All Bboxx’s systems run on its comprehensive management platform Bboxx Pulse®, enabling clean energy access to be scaled to places previously considered too expensive or difficult to reach via traditional grid infrastructure.

The products will have a significant impact on the lives of those they support, be that allowing a child to study at home, allowing a vendor to continue trading after dark, or allowing remote communities to stay connected by charging their devices.

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 Mansoor Hamayun, CEO and Co-Founder of Bboxx.

The move is in line with Bboxx mission to connect billions of underserved customers to modern utilities.

Through the launch of Flexx by Bboxx, the company will build on the momentum of its ongoing expansion and serve a wider array of customers.

At present, the majority of the underserved rural population still needs access to a reliable energy source. Flexx by Bboxx will help change this.

To date, Bboxx has successfully delivered clean energy solutions for over 2 million people globally, with substantial operations in countries including Rwanda, Kenya, Togo, and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Many of these products are aimed at the top 25% of rural communities. The introduction of Flexx will enable Bboxx to reach the other 75%.

Flexx by Bboxx will first launch in Rwanda and Kenya before expanding to other Bboxx markets in subsequent months including in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
