Scode Enterprise uses an innovative solar technology that makes accessible lighting options for low-income households without access to electricity, combining solar energy and a suitable repayment scheme with mobile banking.
This combination makes it possible for consumers to use the system and pay for it monthly using mobile payment on their phones thereby circumventing the problem of high initial investment costs of solar home systems.
