Eseye partner M-KOPA makes a difference to 100,000 homes in East Africa.

M2M connectivity makes solar powered lighting affordable, offering world-class products to consumers for less than their daily spend on kerosene.

Guildford , UK, 22nd September 2014 – Eseye's long term customer and partner M-KOPA announced on Thursday last week that it has reached a ground-breaking achievement of connecting 100,000 homes in East Africa to light and power using solar technology and M2M connectivity.


This achievement has been realised in less than 2 years and marks an important milestone for the company supplying solar powered light and electricity to populations outside the grid.

The company estimates that each of the solar powered homes will save $750 over the next 4 years resulting in a combined saving of $75M on Kerosene; money, which we agree, is better spent on other priorities - more food on the table, more money for school books and tuition, more cash to invest in businesses.

Eseye is a long term design and development partner for M-KOPA. As part of the development team right from the onset, Eseye has been instrumental in the architecture and design of the M2M design behind this novel business that enhances lives. As a global M2M solutions provider, manages all connectivity to the existing 100,000 devices.

"We are proud to have been part of the team that has developed this marvellous technology to enable and empower people giving them opportunities to achieve, learn, and save" says Paul Marshall, COO at Eseye.

M-KOPA is a customer that perfectly encapsulates Eseye's end-to-end approach delivering expertise, devices and connectivity that work the world over with the same ubiquitous experience regardless of location, carrier and function.

In conjunction with the announcement last week, M-KOPA released a video showing how the M-KOPA solution has made a significant difference to the lives of the people using it. Watch the M-KOPA Video here: bit.ly/m-kopa100k.
