Who’s the biggest solar light seller in Africa?

Who’s the biggest solar light seller in Africa?… SunnyMoney!

Our CEO, Steve Andrews, recently took a trip to Senegal for the Lighting Africa conference; the third international off-grid lighting and trade fair. To our delight, he discovered SunnyMoney has surpassed the competition by selling 203,000 solar lights in the last 3 years, making it the biggest seller of solar lights in Africa!

“Two weeks ago I attended the World Bank/IFC Lighting Africaconference in Dakar along with some colleagues. At breakfast on the first day, we speculated as to whether SunnyMoney is the biggest last mile seller of solar lights in Africa; or whether that accolade still sits with the French oil giant, Total.” Read on at
