African Mini Grids is an authoritative destination for plug-and-play solar systems that power villages, healthcare centers, schools, businesses and combinations thereof. We pre-install mini grids in South Africa and ship them to remote areas to be "plugged" in. This results in high quality, safe, and long lasting systems and decreases errors and time wasted out in the field. Last year, we helped bring the first ever 30-year battery to Malawi. Our team has 30+ years combined experience working in African solar companies. Due to our experience, we help local installers and organisations bring in very sophisticated solar systems that otherwise would not be offered in many places in Africa. We invest in local talent by providing on the job training for local technicians so that foreigners are not required to be flown in to finish projects.
