Who We Are

SunPoynt  is a solar technology company based in Kenya ,which  brings digital solar powered TV   systems to Kenyan rural off-grid communities without access to news, information, education, solar lighting and phone charging.

Our mission is to contribute to green energy revolution in Kenya and the rest of East Africa  by bringing to  communities modern, clean energy solutions for home based entertainment, education, information and  lighting incorporating new technologies that  improves peoples’ standards of living, health, better the environment and eliminate energy poverty burden.

The Market

SunPoynt is disrupting the problems of energy access, helping accelerate access to news, information and education as well as eliminating kerosene use and enabling technology deployment in emerging markets.

  • In East Africa, mobile phone penetration is almost ubiquitous
  • 5 million households in Kenya lack access to electricity and spend $15-35 a year on phone charging.
  • 25million people lack access to power which represents ~$500m/year spend on kerosene for lighting.
  • This represents a huge commercial opportunity ~$500m/year

Solar power is an obvious alternative to kerosene, candles or disposable batteries which, light-for-light, cost over 100x the price of the equivalent energy in the developed world and can represent as much as 30% of the net income of rural households.
