WHAT WE DO

Oolu is one of the fastest growing off-grid solar companies in West Africa. Our vision is to be a leading energy and financial services provider to millions of customers in the developing world.

Our model, developed with local communities, allows us to offer high-quality solar products on an affordable financing plan. We are proud of our after-sales commitment, with replacement parts under warranty and customer service representatives who speak the local languages of our customers.

In Wolof, a national language of Senegal, Oolu means ‘trust’. By building trust with the communities in which we work, we can grow together.

ENERGY ACCESS

Oolu’s solar home systems provide households with brighter, more efficient lights and in-home chargers at a small fraction of their standard monthly energy expenditure. We replace dim, low-quality flashlights and lamps with the best technology available. By doing so, we also eliminate the need for rural people to travel kilometers to nearby electrified villages to charge their phones. We believe everyone deserves affordable, reliable energy and that clean energy is the future.

ACCESS TO INFORMATION

Oolu’s provides needed quality products and related services which act as a stepping stone to accessing information and connecting people. The ability to charge phones easily and conveniently provides children and families access to the internet, a means to connect with family and friends, and even business and employment opportunities. This is just the beginning. Oolu is committed to connecting people with the fast-paced, ever-changing world around them.

EDUCATION

Everyone has a right to education and information. Lighting from Oolu’s distributed solar home systems allows children to study an average of one to two hours longer each night — the single most important advantage in the eyes of our clients.
