Who we are

Greenlight Planet designs, distributes, and finances the purchase of solar powered home energy solutions for the world’s 1.

3 billion under-electrified consumers. We are market leaders in the distributed off-grid solar industry, and our Sun King™ products have enabled 76 million people around the world to access clean, reliable, solar powered light and energy at home.

Sun King products range from portable solar lamps to more robust multi-light solar home systems, to solar powered televisions and fans and energy efficient inverter bulbs.

  • Our products drastically improve quality of life for those that lack reliable electricity access : they help extend the number of productive, income generating hours in a day;
  • they enable children to study after dark; they allow families and communities to gather safely to socialize after sunset;
  • and when replacing field-based sources of light like kerosene lamps, they reduce exposure to indoor air pollution.

    We reach our customers through two distinct business models : a vast network of more than 300 distribution partners across 40 countries, and through our EasyBuy™ Direct sales channel, where we sell directly to consumers in India, Kenya, Myanmar, Nigeria, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia through a network of more than 7,000 commission sales agents.

    Our customers have the option to purchase these products up front or to pay for them through an instalment payment plan over a period of 4-18 months through our Sun King EasyBuy™ line, our technology enabled pay-as-you-go’ (PAYG) systems.

    Greenlight employs more than 1,500 people in 11 countries across sub-Saharan Africa and Asia. We are passionate about serving off-grid customers, and we are driven by the challenge of continuously innovating and growing a smart, sustainable business with profound impact on the world.
