About Our Company
gnuGrid Africa is Uganda based clean-tech social enterprise that is driving the energy transition through data. gnuGrid Africa LTD is reaching a market of solar system providers in Africa, starting in Uganda with a modern PayGo Solution, integrated with hardware that is easy to install as part of any solar array.
Essential to our model is the use of data to de-risk investment in off-grid and on-grid renewables, especially solar. We provide the technology platform for running PAYGO operations and account services.
The PayGo model: Off-grid models of solar panels with batteries and linked to a payment mechanism is well developed as a model, but software as a service models are limited and limiting

It stagnated by the initial cash investment required by last mile solar users and poor after-sales services. In conversation with our customers in Uganda especially those that are trying to use pay-go and energy sensors, we’ve learned that many companies are unsatisfied by a number of elements of the current solutions:
The PayGo solution meets the needs of solar system providers in Uganda for operationalizing their sales....
This is a circuit board designed to monitor tampering and usage and to provide the unlock /lock mechanism standard in PayGo solutions ....
