About Us

Improving energy access for the rural off-grid communities in Africa

Deevabits Green Energy (DGE) is an award social enterprise that distributes solar products to off-grid rural areas in Kenya using a last-mile distribution approach of Village Solar Entrepreneurs (VSE).

Our Distribution Model

We use an innovative approach of empowering Village Solar Entrepreneurs (VSEs) (youth and women) to establish micro-enterprises distributing solar lamps. The VSEs form a robust distribution channel of improving access to solar lamps to the remote rural areas; while the pay-as-you-go model enables the poorest households to own a solar lamp by paying for it in small installments hence removing the barrier for upfront payment. The VSEs earn income for their family as they provide affordable and clean lighting sources for their neighbours and friends. 

As an impact-driven social enterprise, we endeavor and commit to reinvesting the majority of our profits to achieve sustainability, grow our scale and reach and ensure the fulfillment of our mission.
