Company Description

ecoligo is a solar utility that provides low-cost solar energy to local businesses in emerging markets. We finance the solar systems through a crowdinvesting platform, offering projects to private investors while closing the finance gap that prevents these solar projects from being realised. Investments on the ecoligo platform not only provide a fixed and attractive return, but also save tonnes of CO2 emissions and support economic growth in the project country.
