SunFi offers payment plans to transition millions of consumers from petrol generators to Solar.

PROBLEM

In Africa, at least 560 Million people lack access to affordable, reliable, sustainable energy. About 16.7 million of these are everyday Nigerians in urban and peri-urban areas. These Nigerians emit 32 million metric tonnes of CO2 and spend over $7 billion annually using petrol generators to plug the gap. Solar installers are best positioned to address this problem but cannot currently do so because they lack access to fast-affordable consumer financing, recommendation tools, vetted installer talent, and optimized technology.

SOLUTION

SunFi has built the first solar fintech platform which helps 3rd party solar installers offer their end consumers solar financing and payment plans. We also offer these solar installers productivity tools and better tech partnerships accelerating the transition of over 1 million Nigerian consumers to solar, eliminating over 3 million metric tonnes of CO2 each year and saving more than $500 million annually in petrol generator spending.
