Delivering an all-in-one reliable, outage-free Electricity, Internet access, home/shop Security & Digital services

Through a decentralized, Carbon-free, IOT & Blockchain powered Smart nano-grids network

Light

We bring affordable green energy to both non-connected people (off-grid) and those on-grid but suffering from frequent and lasting power-cuts through an autonomous back-up solution. Light is life and the trigger to so many essential services to develop a country.

Communication

With electricity goes communication with an all-in-one device, we will give valuable opportunities to our customers to expand their knowledge, better entertain themselves and develop their own business through a reliable access to the Internet.

Security

Securing power will be our platform to deliver a full range of security services to both businesses and families, from physical premises monitoring to health insurance. Asset & people protection is a key enabling policy to sustainable development.

Digital

Leveraging on a reliable, outage-free, electricity and pervasive internet connectivity, we will provide local businesses a fault-tolerant decentralized cloud computing infrastructure for running their very local and global digital services
