Pay-as-you-go basic services for the BoP
We've developed a software and hardware technology platform that enables us to operate and offer a range of basic services to the BoP through a pay-as-you-go (PAYG) model. Our PAYG technology can be applied to off-grid photovoltaic systems and fluid systems that provide gas or water. Through partnerships with manufacturers and distributors focused on solar off-grid photovoltaic and solar hot water systems we provide electricity and hot water services to the population that currently lacks access to these services.
Systems are installed for free in the users' households. Through our PAYG platform, users can purchase daily, weekly or monthly electricity and hot water codes in local community kiosks, convenience stores or with credit or debit cards using Vitaluz's proprietary technology. All this process can be done without the need of internet access or mobile data. We plan to add potable water and gas to the services we offer in the future.
